Threats and effects pathways of shipping related to non-renewable resource developments on Atlantic walruses (Odobenus rosmarus rosmarus) in Hudson Strait and Foxe Basin, Nunavut / D. Bruce Stewart, Jeff...: Fs97-6/3283E-PDF
"Mining-related shipping and port developments are likely to increase in Canada’s eastern Arctic. Ore mines will ship product via Foxe Basin and Hudson Strait and all mines require resupply ships. Atlantic walruses are important in the Arctic food web and to Inuit and these ships will transit important walrus habitats. We used a GIS framework to map spatiotemporal overlap of walruses with shipping and related resource development. Shipping and infrastructure information available in 2014 was based on 2010 (current) and 2020 (projected) activities. The model combined this information with information on walrus ecology and habitat to conduct a preliminary assessment of potential impacts of these activities on walruses"--Abstract, page viii.
