Arctic Salmon

Assessing fish biodiversity change and coastal ecosystems across the Canadian Arctic using community-led approaches

Working together with our northern partners,

we focus on two themes: Arctic Salmon and Arctic Coast

Arctic Salmon

Arctic fish biodiversity and change

The Arctic Salmon program uses salmon as an indicator to monitor ecosystem change in the Canadian Arctic. Using a community-based approach, the Arctic Salmon program works with rights-holders, co-management boards, decision-makers, and other stakeholders to monitor distributional shifts of fishes across the entire Canadian Arctic.

Arctic Coast

Arctic coastal ecosystem research and monitoring

The Arctic Coast program uses a community-led approach to assess the coastal ecosystem, from the benthos to the fish and their habitats, during summer and winter. Bridging Indigenous and scientific knowledge, baseline information about coastal ecosystems can be identified and compared spatially and temporally to assess and monitor for change.
