The chapter will be published in the book “Sea Otter Conservation” and it focuses on the gaps and opportunities in our knowledge of the relationships between humans, sea otters and kelp ecosystems. It synthesizes pre-existing archaeological evidence, historical records, traditional knowledge and contemporary ecological data illuminating how human and sea otter relationships were managed in the past, prior to colonial settlement, economies and laws, and how they might be managed again today.
