NWT Environmental Research Bulletin Issue #17: Arctic Salmon: Community monitoring initiatives find increasing salmon in the NWT
Salmon are increasing in the Canadian Arctic. Community members are
monitoring these changes through their subsistence harvests and are currently
working with researchers at Fisheries and Oceans Canada to understand this
change. Increasing salmon may impact native fishes; however, fishers may also
benefit from increased harvests. Salmon may be moving further north due to
broader changes in ocean and freshwater ecosystems related to climate change.
Environmental and Natural Resources Issue #17 of the NWT Environmental Research Bulletin (NERB) series is now available and highlights Arctic Salmon: Community monitoring initiatives find increasing salmon in the NWT.
Bulletins are issued regularly to provide a summary of research findings or concepts for NWT residents and northern resource decision makers.
