The Northern Bering Sea: Our Way of Life highlights large hunting and fishing areas, and the ecological importance of the region. It illustrates that the whole northern Bering Sea is the storehouse that supports our way of life.

The Northern Bering Sea: Our Way of Life is a project of the Bering Sea Elders Group with support from Alaska Marine Conservation Council.
