The overarching goal of the MARES project is to understand the inter-relationships of biophysical and chemical parameters on living resources, including marine mammals that use this ecosystem. This larger picture of the effect of the Mackenzie River plume needs to be interpreted with respect to historic information and findings, including the ANIMIDA I-III, U.S. - Canada Transboundary Fish and Lower Trophic Communities and CASES studies and to interpret the MARES findings in reference to the significant decrease in sea ice.
