Thank you for visiting our website. As Nunavut's first 100% Inuit owned and governed fish harvesting enterprise, we strive to ensure that the benefits from Nunavut's offshore fishing resources are returned to our owners in the communities of:

  • Arctic Bay
  • Grise Fiord
  • Qikiqtarjuaq
  • Resolute Bay

The Kiviuq 1 is the sister ship to the Suvak. After extensive modifications and conversions it is set up as a fixed gear wet fish vessel to harvest Atlantic Halibut, cod and hake in Eastern Canada. The vessel is also used for exploratory fisheries and scientific research in Northern Canada.
