I track Greenland Halibut with the use of acoustic telemetry in Scott Inlet, Nunavut, which can help develop sustainable fisheries and provide economic development to the north. I also look at stress levels in wild-caught Greenland Halibut and Greenland Sharks to assess the detrimental effects of capture to fisheries discards.
