Id photos are now being collected in big series. At least 30 encounters is now documented for the spring of 2011. It is our hope to expand this into a ongoing scheme where photographers in the whole area of Disko Bay and also on to Canada can contribute to make a catalogue.

Recapture are until now only registered within a season.
