GNU: Harvest limit of 170 for Bluenose East caribou herd
27 October 2021
The Department of Environment has set a Total Allowable Harvest (TAH) limit for the Bluenose East caribou herd in response to a continuing decline in the population, which has led to a conservation concern.
A maximum of 170 caribou may be harvested from this herd within the Nunavut Settlement Area.
The Department of Environment has also established a non-quota limitation sex-selective harvest ratio, where up to one female caribou can be harvested for every male caribou harvested (up to a 1:1 ratio).
Hunters will need to obtain a tag from the wildlife office before hunting.
