Scientists say more than 12,000 species experiencing ‘range shift’ Pacific salmon used to be so unfamiliar in Arctic waters that many communities don’t have local words for the fish, and there are stories of harvesters feeding them to their dogs. But in recent years, chum, pink and sockeye salmon have been showing up in so many fishing nets that Fisheries and Oceans Canada has been keeping track. Michelle Gruben works at the Hunters and Trappers Committee (HTC) in Aklavik, N.W.T., a small community near the Mackenzie delta on the Beaufort Sea, collecting salmon from harvesters in order to pass them on to scientists with the Arctic Salmon project.
