Title VIII required the creation of Subsistence Regional Advisory Councils to enable rural residents to have a meaningful role in Federal subsistence management. The Secretaries of the Interior and of Agriculture subsequently established the Federal Subsistence Management Program. The Program is a multi-agency effort that includes the Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Indian Affairs and the USDA Forest Service. These agencies manage the Federal public lands where subsistence activities take place, including waters running through or next to Federal public lands and limited marine jurisdiction. The Secretaries delegated management authority for subsistence uses in Alaska to the Federal Subsistence Board, which is comprised of the regional directors of the five Federal public lands managers in Alaska and a representative appointed by the Secretaries to serve as Chair. The Board is the decisionmaking body that oversees the Federal Subsistence Management Program. The ten Subsistence Regional Advisory Councils provide recommendations and information to the Board, review policies and management plans, provide a public forum, develop proposals, evaluate current and anticipated subsistence needs, and perform other duties required by the Board. The Councils make recommendations to the Board regarding proposed changes to fish and wildlife regulations; management plans; policies, standards, and guidelines; determinations of rural status; subsistence use allocations; and other matters related to subsistence take of fish and wildlife. The Councils meet at least twice a year. Council chairs attend at least two Board meetings a year to represent the recommendations of their Councils and provide knowledge and advice to the Board. 16c0ecc3-0b66-4d4b-9523-187a080eafda Recommandations Not Available 2613b33d-5fcd-4217-9ef2-3df9d20763a8 Make, Accept, Implement d3c48f6d-1c9c-4664-b025-298c98d2a272 5b6c42f9-0bfd-43a4-818c-f3d654aa8177 Recommendations Made Number Seward Peninsula Subsistence Regional Advisory Council Department of the Interior Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 In FY 2011 the Council made recommendations to the Federal Subsistence Board on 9 fisheries proposals from another region because those proposals affected a portion of the Seward Peninsula.
