Our Sea, Our Health

Alain Cuerrier, botanist at the IRBV, as well as his Ph.D. student Michael Rapinski, are among the authors of a new collective book titled Our Sea, Our Health.

This book highlights the extraordinary diversity of country foods of marine origin that are traditionally and currently consumed by the Inuit of Kangiqsujuaq and Ivujivik. More importantly, it highlights the capacity for Nunavimmiut to adapt to their environment and the importance of actively promoting the integration of organisms from the sea, notably the smaller ones including seafood and shellfish into current food systems, particularly among younger Inuit generations.
