In 2001, NVE became a part of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's Office of Subsistence Management (OSM)'s Fisheries Resource Monitoring Program (FRMP). This was DENR's first major expansion into natural resource management and was a big step towards officially re-establishing our traditional role as stewards of our home lands. Since 2001, DENR has expanded greatly and is now pioneering a modern era of research and collaborative management combining western science and traditional knowledge. As active stewards of the land and water, NVE has built strong ties with governmental agencies, becoming an integral part of the region's environmental and resource management policy making.
NVE has completed or is working on several fisheries research projects, many of which have been funded through the FRMP. Other funding sources include the Alaska Sustainable Salmon Fund and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
