feuilleAMIK’s environmental department offers biomass assessment, coastal and marine ecosystem monitoring, collection and implementation of traditional knowledge as well as education and awareness support to its member communities. The team is currently composed of a Biologist/Project Co-ordinator as well as two project managers. Other personnel, such as interns and supplemental project managers, may join the team occasionally. For any questions on the environmental sector, please contact Claire Pédrot, Environmental Sector Manager.

Monitoring Species and Ecosystems

Across the world, almost 230,000 species of marine life are known, but thousands, possibly millions of others remain to be discovered.

AMIK is developing a number of projects with its member communities on the subject as one of its mandates is to inform its members and support them in the protection of coastal and marine biodiversity. To this end, the agency develops projects that allow them to collect information and data, conduct follow-ups and develop diverse teaching aids. For commercial species, the projects appear on the Sustainable Fisheries Management page.
