The Canadian military has carried out an investigation into the source of a mysterious noise coming from the sea floor in the remote Arctic. People from the community have also reported that there was less marine wildlife than usual.

The sound is a mysterious pinging sound coming from the sea floor in the Arctic and its unknown cause is baffling the Canadian military and hunters who blame it for driving their away their prey. 

Paul Quassa, an assembly in the Canadian territory of Nunavut, blames the noise for driving away the animals in the Fury and Hecla Strait.

That's one of the major hunting areas in the summer and winter because it's a polynya. And this became a suspicious thing, Quassa told to CBC.

The sounds, described as "pings", "hums "and "beeps ", was heard in Fury and Hecla Strait roughly 120 kilometers northwest of the hamlet of Igloolik throughout the summer.

The Canadian Department of National Defence told CBC that it has been made aware of the strange noise and A CP-140 Aurora aircraft was sent to investigate the strange noise.

 According to Guardian, the aircrew performed various multi-sensor searches in the area but failed to detect any acoustic anomalies", noted by CDND in a statement.

According to the Government of Canada, Aurora was sent under the mandate of operation Limpid and described it is a routine domestic surveillance of Canadian air, land, space and cyber domains.

Paul Quassa, a member of Igloolik of the legislative assembly has belief in mind that the military department will keep investigating on this and also keep in touch with the hunters about their new findings.

He reported that the noise is apparently stopped after the Canadian military investigation. Nothing has been proven yet. So we'll be watching this story until some new information exists.
