The establishment of a long-term, river-based monitoring program for Arctic Char (Salvelinus alpinus) in the Cambridge Bay area of Nunavut

Arctic Char, Salvelinus alpinus, is the most important fish species in Nunavut, and it supports significant commercial, recreational, and Inuit fisheries throughout its range. More specifically, in the Cambridge Bay area of the territory this species has long been an important staple in Nunavut fisheries and has historically provided one of the most significant commercial resources for the territory. The importance of Arctic Char and its long, successful commercial history in the Cambridge Bay area is unparalleled and since the inception of the fishery in 1960, more than 2,000,000kgs of this species have been sustainably harvested.
