Extremely important information regarding which animal products may leave the country freely, which animal products require a CITES permit, and which animal products may not leave the country at all. This is posted in the Sisimiut Craft Workshop, pictured below. (Taken Summer 2013)IMG_4640IMG_4639

This is the meat & fish market, Qimatulivik (literal translation: “Storage Place”). See below if you happen to be interested in the going rates for Greenlandic specialties like Halibut, Reindeer, Muskox, Seal, Snowhare, etc. (Taken Summer 2013)

Below – Pricing for Greenlandic specialities (the first word is the animal and the second, third, etc. words describe the cut of meat, the part of the body, whether it is dried or not, and so on).

I will keep it simple and give a small Greenlandic-to-English dictionary of the animals (in order of appearance) 🙂

Also, the second column tells the unit. “Kg-mut” = “per kilo” (2.2 lb). “Ataaseq” = “for one” or “each”.
