Part of research vessel’s purpose is for communities to develop own fisheries

The RV Ludy Pudluk is back in Nunavut waters for its second year of inshore fishing research.

After spending last year in Sanikiluaq and Kinngait, the $2.6-million research vessel has returned to Sanikiluaq to continue investigating what food species are at the bottom of the ocean in that area, says Qikiqtaaluk Corporation director of fisheries Jerry Ward.

The Qikiqtaaluk Corporation-owned Ludy Pudluk was built in 2018.

The initial plan was to go to Sanirajak and Igloolik, but ice conditions made it difficult to sail that far up initially, so the crew returned to Sanikiluaq to build on last year’s work.

The plan is still to go up to Sanirajak and Igloolik later this year when ice conditions improve, Ward said.
