a solid foundation for assessing and quantifying ongoing and future changes to both the shelf and basin regions of the western Arctic Ocean; valuable knowledge for addressing emerging issues such as warming, ice cover retreat, species invasion, hypoxia and acidification; and a solid basis for practising good governance and decision-making related to the management and conservation of species and for adapting to the changing Arctic.
Principal investigator Dr. Eddy Carmack of the DFO Institute of Ocean Sciences led a C3O team of scientists from both Canadian and foreign governments as well as academia.

LIGHTS, LOVES AND LIFES

In 2000 Eddy Carmack, a climate researcher at Canada's Institute of Ocean Science, started the Drift Bottle Project, initially to study currents around northern North America. In the past 12 years, he and his colleagues have launched some 6,400 bottled messages from ships around the world. Of those, 264â€"about 4 percentâ€"have been found and reported. "There have been some amazing paths followed by these bottles," Carmack said. Three that were dropped into the Beaufort Sea (map), above northern Alaska and northwestern Canada, became frozen in sea ice, he said. 
Five years later, melting Arctic ice had flushed the bottles all the way to northern Europe. Another bottle circled Antarctica one and a half times before it wound up on the Australian island of Tasmania. Some have made it from Mexico to the Philippines. And others have demonstrated that oil spills and debris from development in Canada's Labrador Sea and Baffin Bay could end up on Irish, French, Scottish, and Norwegian beaches. But there's more to the project than science, Carmack said. "The main thing about this study is that it connects people with the currents of the ocean," he said. "We find that we are only a bottle drop away from our neighbors around the world."

A captain and teacher in Connecticut, Bercaw has been obsessed with drift bottles since the early 1970s, when he and his parents sailed around the world on a 38-foot (12-meter) ketch called Natasha. As a 10-year-old, Bercaw dropped 40 bottles over the side and received two responses. Twenty-five years later, he began the project anew. Today he's cast more than 250 bottles into the sea and received responses from about 50.
