This project aims to characterize the temporal and spatial environmental variables responsible for spatio-temporal patterns of large fish and invertebrate species using a seafloor cabled-observatory time-lapse camera as well as video surveys of the surrounding area. Ultimately, the spatio-temporal observations of the project will help to understand the mechanisms driving species responses to environmental change and the research program will enable researchers to assess ecosystem resilience and predict how current trends may affect Canadian sub-Arctic communities.
