Winter Shrimp Fishing in Grise Fiord

Mark Akeeagok, Community Development Officer of AFA, has been fishing for shrimp through the ice in Grise Fiord.  In January, he caught 216 shrimp in 2 pots!  Right now, he is working on developing a method for collecting information on each catch so that a community-based exploratory fishery program can be established.  We’ll have more updates on this in the future.
