[Abundance estimates of narwhal stocks in the Canadian High Arctic in 2013] .: Fs70-6/2015-046S-PDF

An aerial survey was conducted for six narwhal summering aggregations (hereafter referred to as stocks) in the Canadian High Arctic in August 2013. This is the first time that a survey counted all of the Canadian High Arctic narwhal stocks during one summer, and the first time for narwhals in Jones Sound and Smith Sound. The total estimate for the Canadian High Arctic was 141,909 (Coefficient of Variation, CV by stock ranged from 20 to 65%) narwhals. This Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat (CSAS) Science Advisory Report provides updated scientific advice regarding Total Allowable Landed Catch (TALC) levels for each of the Baffin Bay narwhal stocks, and for narwhals in Smith and Jones Sounds.
