The narwhal (Monodon Monoceros) is one of Canada’s Arctic Marine Mammals.
The harvest by Canada’s Inuit hunters for subsistence is legal and strictly controlled and regulated by Canada’s Department of Fisheries and Ocean. The Inuit people use every part of the small arctic whale, including meat, organs, blubber and the skin which is the Inuit’s natural source of vitamin C.
The narwhal tusks, which are formed from a modified left upper incisor tooth, are not the primary subject of the hunt and rather a by-product of the harvest. The hunters may use the tusk for carvings or they sell this spiral formed unicorn looking ivory tusk to support their families.
All narwhal tusks have a harvest tag attached from Canada Ocean and Fisheries. We only ship narwhal tusks with CITES Export Permits, Marine Mammal Transportation License and Veterinary Certificates. If the Narwhal tusks are only transported within Canada then only the Marine Mammal Transportation License is required.
NARWHAL PRODUCTS CAN NOT BE EXPORTED TO THE USA, UNITED KINGDOM,
AUSTRALIA, TAIWAN OR MEXICO.
