A Canadian Ranger from Gjoa Haven, illuminated by a snowmobile and his headlamp in a snowstorm, helps pull a net using under-ice fishing techniques during a Patrol on King William Island, Nunavut. During the winter months darkness lasts over 20-hours per day in the Arctic with the sun never rising past the horizon resulting in living in near darkness for months. King William Island is the final resting place of the doomed Franklin Expedition of 1845, a British Naval mission to find a passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean through the Arctic. The ships were crushed in the ice and all crew perished.
