Science / project plan

An ongoing telemetry study show that the ringed seals in Kangia are stationary and morphological measurements show that they are larger than other ringed seals. This study will give an idea of their numbers, which is important for the understanding of their ecological importance in the fjord and for an evaluation of the sustainability of the current hunt.
