Video I made showing a common Arctic chaetognath eating a mound of detritus and algae under the microscope. These animals are so called “strict carnivores”, but this Eukrohnia hamata specimen, caught in the Chukchi Sea during fall, seems to be an omnivore!
Video: see me explain why the Canadian icebreakers such as the Amundsen are an awesome tool in research, bringing together scientists from all over the world!
Nice article in the Globe and Mail newspaper (2014) about the future of Canadian Arctic research and the CCGS Amundsen research platform
