Mussel memory in Nunavik

Madeline Higgins spends her day picking mussels in Kuujjuarusik, outside of Kuujjuaq, on a warm Sunday in mid-September. The temperature hit 12 C on Sept. 11, according to Environment and Climate Change Canada. More than a decade ago, researchers said Nunavik has the least contaminated mussels in the world with lower bacterial counts than European mussels.
