During the Environmental Technology Program Fish Management course students learn all about domestic, commercial, and subsistence fishing, as well as various fishing issues across Nunavut. 

During the course, 2nd year students learn to set winter nets, and collect fish, a valuable skill to have when conducting scientific studies. 

On our recent outing, the temperature dipped well below -30, but good spirits were kept up through strong team work and peer learning.  Luckily, we had some students who were expert fishermen to mentor their peers in the fine art of winter fishing.  We left before sunrise and came back after dark with some very rosy cheeks. 

Needless to say everyone slept well that night!
