Eligibility Requirements


Claims for loss of subsistence can be made by Individuals who fished or hunted in certain geographic regions to harvest, catch, barter, consume, or trade Gulf of Mexico natural resources, including Seafood and Game, in a traditional or customary manner to sustain their basic or family dietary, economic security, shelter, tool or clothing needs, and who relied upon subsistence resources that were diminished or restricted in the geographic  region used by the individual due to the Deepwater Horizon Incident.

Those who fish or hunt solely for pleasure or sport are not eligible to make claims for subsistence, regardless of whether or not they consume their catch.

Potential Benefits

Payments will be based on the retail value of the Seafood and Game lost between April 20, 2010 and December 31, 2011. An RTP* multiplier will be applied to payments for Loss of Subsistence claims, in part to account for the damage to subsistence family and community customs and culture.
