The narwhal is a relatively small arctic toothed whale (4 – 5 meters). It is shy and typically lives in the drift ice around the northern ice cap, where it can live up to 100 years. This makes the narwhal particularly vulnerable to the severe climate changes that are taking place around the Arctic. The Inuit have traditionally hunted narwhals both for their valuable tusk, fine meat and not least, for the tasty skin….

Baltic Sea

For an extended period, the cod population in the Baltic Sea has been facing severe challenges. Overfishing and environmental issues have taken a toll on their well-being, causing a decline in their health. Consequently, many of them have become thin, emaciated, and susceptible to diseases. However, a pertinent question arises: What happens when wild cod are given the opportunity to recuperate? …
