Today we woke up to glorious sunshine…but the sea ice is still coming thick and fast into Tremblay Sound. It was also the kick-off for fish expert Lars Hammer´s char study.
Char is an Arctic fish related to the salmon family. The fish is beautifully colored in red, silver and white and for many people living in the North is one of the most important foods. The Inuit researchers in camp know exactly when and where to catch char; another example of their traditional knowledge which is vital for the project’s success. Believe it or not, the largest char weighed almost eight kilograms!
