The Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat just released a thorough science advisory report on the North Water area, a region of Northern Baffin Bay often visited and studied from the CCGS Amundsen. This report details the current state of the very biologically productive North Water Polynya (a region that remains ice-free during winter).

Findings from annual Arctic Expeditions of the Amundsen are incorporated in this report to support decision-making and the development of conservation and management policy.
