Grateful for the fish that provides food, the people of the Coronation Gulf would thank their catch with a kiss. A surveyor, working in the area with his camera, captured the endearing kiss of a Great Arctic Char at Port Epworth, Nunavut, where Tree River flows into the Coronation Gulf. The photo represented Northern Canada for decades in many publications worldwide.
