Arctic Char

Arctic Char resemble salmons, their meat is also pink but is very soft, similar to trout. They live in fresh water lakes near the coast and go to the sea for feeding, as the cold Arctic seas are very rich in food but the shallow lakes have very little food.

We tried fishing for Arctic Char in the giant Buchanan Lake on Western Axel Heiberg Island but they failed to bite. A geological hammer proved to be more efficient as we managed to hammer one down in the shallow braided stream between the lake and the sea while it was resting unsuspicious of any danger.
