Traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) at Shingle Point, YT : observations on changes in the environment and fish populations / by J.D. Brewster … [et al.]. : Fs97-6/3174E-PDF

Understanding the environmental changes and determining baseline information for Beaufort Sea fishes is a crucial step in sustaining the fish populations and habitats within a changing Arctic climate. Shingle Point, YT is a traditional and modern day fishing and hunting community for Western Arctic indigenous people and is part of a marine protected area and the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR). The incorporation of Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) is important in understanding the changes in this coastal habitat. During the summer of 2015, Shingle Point harvesters and their families participated in TEK interviews. The interviews provided observational information on: 1) fish population changes, 2) environmental changes, 3) concerns, and 4) reasons to return to Shingle Point. Results from the TEK interviews indicate changes have been observed in the environment and coastal fish populations for decades. The utilization of TEK in the form of specific and open-ended interviews/questionnaires can be used to document and understand long-term changes in the environment and marine biota, as well as bolster quantitative research in the future, to better understand the environmental impacts of climate change on the Beaufort marine ecosystems.
