Nunavut Fishing

“Nunavut is the largest and newest federal territory of Canada; it was separated officially from the Northwest Territories on April 1, 1999, via the Nunavut Act and the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement Act, though the actual boundaries had been established in 1993. The creation of Nunavut – meaning “our land” in Inuktitut – resulted in the first major change to Canada’s map since the incorporation of the new province of Newfoundland in 1949.”

The province is near 8% water and is found in the Arctic Archipelago, and includes most of the islands found in northern Canada. It encompasses the Northwest Passage, borders and the Beaufort Sea and Baffin Bay. Water is a heavy feature, and fishing, including Nunavut fishing charters and guides, are a big industry for the province. Most of the arctic type fish are found in the area, and other species make their way in depending on the icepack and time of year. Some of the fish found in Nunavut fishing are as follows:

Greenland Halibut



Arctic Char

Northern Pike
