Extraction of food in the Arctic

Survive in the polar regions of our planet is extremely difficult. Especially when it comes to extreme off-survival. Today we talk about the complexities of food production in the Arctic (hereinafter, so as not to confound the author will talk about the Arctic, but the description can be moved and the South Pole - Antarctica).

Features of the circumpolar climatic zone: low temperature, the floor of the polar night, plenty of snow, ice, strong katabatic winds from the North Pole. In such circumstances, can not grow plants, so that the plant food in the Arctic not can count on more southern suburbs, and even then, during the short summer. You can find some berries like cloudberry, blueberry, cranberry. Rare fungi.

In the circumpolar regions have to rely only on meat and fish food. Need to hunt any animals, which only manage to track down and allow your arms and equipment. If you can get to the water - you need to try to catch a fish that lives in abundance in these latitudes.

The absence of plant foods causes the traveler in the polar latitudes, vitamin deficiency. From beriberi "C" may develop scurvy. So, it is desirable, going to the poles, stock up on onions, garlic and vitamin medication "C".

Beriberi "A" can be reduced if the diet to make quite a bit of polar bear liver. Portions not more than 50-80g per person for 3-4 days. In any case you can not eat polar bear liver in large chunks, it contains so much vitamin "A" that can already die from hypervitaminosis.
