Abstract
Sustainable harvest and wildlife issues continue to be an important part of ICC (Canada)’s efforts. Supporting the hunting, fishing, co-management and subsistence activities of Inuit is evident in virtually all activities of ICC. ICC (Canada) has continued to speak against the animal rights’ lobby and attempts to halt seal harvesting in eastern Canada and has delivered numerous addresses around the world in support of our positions. ICC (Canada) works with IUCN, the World Conservation Union, on animal rights matters and has been active in the International Whaling Commission. Further, ICC (Canada) is an observer in the North American Marine Mammal Commission.
Over the past year, ICC (Canada) had dialogue with the World Wide Fund for Nature (Arctic Programme) and undertook dialogue with various European states including the United Kingdom, Germany and France whose citizens sometime sympathize with animal welfare organizations on these matters. Our Russian project also provided for a strong co-management component to deal with these ongoing issues. While the Arctic Council and other key international mechanisms are reluctant to address sustainable harvest and wildlife issues of relevance to Inuit, ICC (Canada) continues to find other avenues in which to defend the rights of Inuit.

Abstract
In this paper, I analyze the mixed economy of the Nets'aii Gwich'in settlement of Arctic Village, Alaska. The economic structures of the Gwich'in began to undergo considerable change following Contact by Europeans in the 19th century. Today the Gwich'in possess several modern amenities, and are linked to the global capitalist economy.
Still, data collected in the village in 1999 provide cogent evidence that the priorities and values of the community remain centered upon the hunt and other subsistence activities. Cash income generated through wage labor or transfer payments is merely an additional means to perpetuate this activity. Thus, any assumptions that the Gwich'in are on the verge of abandoning this socioeconomic system for an urban-centric, wage labor-based system are at best, premature.

Abstract
The story of Siglufjörður (Siglufjordur), a north Iceland village that became the "Herring Capital of the World," provides a case study of complex interactions between physical, biological, and social systems. Siglufjörður's natural capital - a good harbor and proximity to prime herring grounds - contributed to its development as a major fishing center during the first half of the 20th century. This herring fishery was initiated by Norwegians, but subsequently expanded by Icelanders to such an extent that the fishery, and Siglufjörður in particular, became engines helping to pull the whole Icelandic economy. During the golden years of this "herring adventure," Siglufjörður opened unprecedented economic and social opportunities. Unfortunately, the fishing boom reflected unsustainably high catch rates. In the years following World War II, overfishing by an international fleet eroded the once-huge herring stock. Then, in the mid-1960s, large-scale physical changes took place in the seas north of Iceland. These physical changes had ecological consequences that led to the loss of the herring's main food supply. Severe environmental stress, combined with heavy fishing pressure, drove the herring stocks toward collapse. Siglufjörður found itself first marginalized, then shut out as the herring progressively vanished. During the decades following the 1968 collapse, this former boomtown has sought alternatives for sustainable development.
