The population of Canada is listed on CITES Appendix III. Since 1972 coastal Alaska Natives have hunted Walruses in the United States for subsistence purposes under an exemption provided in the Marine Mammal Protection Act. No quotas or limits have been established, but all animals taken are required to be harvested in a non-wasteful manner. Alaska Natives work with the responsible management agency (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service) to co-manage Walrus hunting. Regulations on harvest are in place in Canada, the Russian Federation, and Greenland. Norway prohibits all hunting at Svalbard (North Atlantic Marine Mammal Commission undated).
