Thanks, Lessa. last year there was a family that stayed around the harbour feeding on various fishes under the ice. last year the harbour froze up in early December to 3 feet thick and didn't free up until late March. this year there is little ice, only slob and that breaks up every week or sooner. this year there is only one lone Otter. one of their main foods in the winter is Herring, and they only congregate in the coves when there is heavy ice for all winter. now the Otters have to be content on the resident small bottom fishes. and crab.
