Project Description:
The purpose of the project is to get a baseline understanding of underwater sound in the Clyde River area. The community of Clyde River has had long interest in monitoring the underwater sound in order to have information for decision making. The project was initiated by the Hamlet with support from the HTO and will be led by Ittaq. Ittaq is partnering with JASCO to deploy two underwater acoustic monitors over 2 years in order to get a baseline of the underwater sound and start a monitoring program. The locations provide on the map are the general area where the community would like to locate the monitors. (The mapping tool was a bit difficult to use but should show the areas)
