The aquatic resources within the project geographical area support large number of unique fish species as well as native amphibian species. Aquatic systems mix the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of catchment area they drain. It creates increased risk to a variety of environmental stressors in Park’s waterbodies. Our goal is not just to maintain them but also to enhance diversity of these species in Arctic. The mail goal of our project is to determine the s
