The Pacific black brant is a Tier 1 Priority Species for the Fish and Wildlife Service, Alaska Region; a focal species for the Fish and Wildlife Species; and is considered extremely important to subsistence and recreational waterfowl hunters. Because approximately 80 percent of Pacific Flyway brant overwinter in Mexico, it is essential the Service obtain annual population estimates to assess recreation and subsistence harvest, nonhunting mortality, and other factors influencing survival, mortality and population abundance and trend.
