Yakutia is not only the largest region in the world, but also the northernmost area that people have mastered and where they adapted economic activity to their needs (Such a large region, that there are even 13 Arctic territories). Today the economy of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) is currently represented by industrial production, construction, transport, trade and agriculture. Agriculture is an indicator of the social climate, social stability of the rural population, and is also the basis of the social well-being of the population. Main types of activity in traditional subsistence of native population are reindeer husbandry, horse herd farming, cattle breeding, agriculture and related processing and marketing. Hunting and fishing are of secondary importance. The leading sectors of the economy are cattle husbandry, horse husbandry and agriculture. The development of the northern peoples is difficult to imagine without these traditionally senile industries. Differences in the geographical area predetermined the presence of areas based on natural resource management features. The population of the northern regions is engaged in reindeer husbandry, since reindeer moss grows here and the territory is sufficient for grazing deer, which cannot be said about the much smaller central regions, where the presence of herbs, flood meadows and drained lakes is suitable for cattle breeding and horse breeding.
