Arctic warming boosts fishermen harvest

Inuit fishermen in Canada are among remote communities benefiting from climate change as Arctic ocean loses ice cover.

    Polar regions are among the most dramatically affected by global warming.

    In the far north, the Arctic Ocean is losing some of its summer ice cover. However, that is also providing an economic lifeline to some remote communities.

    Al Jazeera's Daniel Lak reports from Pangnirtung, an Inuit village in Canada, where many fishermen are benefitting from the change in conditions.
