Hunting and harvesting in the Northern Territory

Harvesting for subsistence is widespread amongst Aboriginal communities across the Northern Territory. Changes have occurred to the way hunting occurs with western foods becoming more prominent in the diet of Aboriginal people. Reliable data on Aboriginal harvesting has only recently become available. Hunting by non-Aboriginals is mainly focused on Magpie Geese. This hunting is closely regulated.
