The Ocean as the Source of Food

The ocean is the source of most traditional foods. This encompasses a wide array, including cod, halibut and tuna harvested from offshore fishing grounds, salmon caught at the river mouths, herring and herring roe, and numerous species of both intertidal invertebrates and sea weeds. Historically, seals, sea otters and sea lions were hunted for both meat and the use of sinew and hides.
