The effects of “quark sea” in determining the flavor structure of the octet baryons have been investigated in the chiral constituent quark model. The chiral constituent quark model is able to qualitatively generate the requisite amount of quark sea and is also known to provide a satisfactory explanation of the proton spin and related issues in the nonperturbative regime. The phenomenological implications of the quark sea asymmetries in the nucleon have been investigated to understand the importance of quark sea at lower values of the Bjorken scaling variable.
