Jonas Heilmann hunts seal, birds, reindeer, whale or musk ox. He fishes for cod, halibut and redfish. In a place with volatile environmental and market conditions, flexibility and diversification define the success of small-scale hunters and fishermen. As unpredictable weather increases, and warming seas impact the productivity and distribution of marine resources, he is also preparing to open a cooperative factory that will process and export meat for hunters and fishermen from Greenland’s capitol city, Nuuk. Jonas hopes this new direction will enable him to continue to live off of the sea in today’s modern climate. (C) Benjamin Drummond
