Commercial and private recreational activities are not allowed on ASRC lands, including but not limited to guided hunting, sport hunting, fishing and videography/photography. However, ASRC lands are open for subsistence activities for shareholders and other qualified subsistence users that are residents of the Native communities of the North Slope. Entry permits are not required for such use.
