Rat River Char Traditional Knowledge
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licenced Year(s): 2007
Summary: The objectives of the study are to document traditional ecological knowledge of Rat River char. Specifically, the researcher will be asking questions about: catch of char; biology of char (e.g., spawning, migration); fishing practices; fishing at the Rat River fish hole; observations on the land related to char; changes in the environment related to char; char predators - concerns and observations...


Travaillant Lake Fish Population Assessment 2007
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of this project is to assess the fish population of Travaillant Lake. Once in the summer and again during the fall, field crews will use experimental gill nets with varying mesh sizes to capture a representative sample of species and sizes within species in Travaillant Lake and at two locations in the Travaillant River. The lake sampling site will be located on the southwest shor...


Investigation of Vittrekwa River Dolly Varden
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The northern subspecies of Dolly Varden char is represented by only five populations in Canada. Of these populations, the Vittrekwa River Dolly Varden has been least studied. In the late 1990s, the presence of this fish was confirmed by the Gwich’in Renewable Resource Board and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Data collected through studies conducted by these organizations showed that at le...


Arctic Red River Fish Study
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: Currently, little information exists on the fisheries resources of the Arctic Red River. Baseline information on fisheries resources is required to make sound management decisions. This information (e.g., biological characteristics of fish: length, weight, age at maturity, migration patterns, date of spawning; presence/absence of species) is collected through long-term studies, traditional knowled...


Stock Delineation of Fish Species in the Mackenzie River
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: This study involves the determination of the population structure of fish in the Mackenzie River. Specific objectives include the delineation of stocks of three fish species: loche (Lota lota), crookedback (Coregonus clupeaformis) and coney (Stenodus leucicthys), and the identification of downstream fisheries as mixed-stock or single-stock fisheries. A population genetics approach will be employed...


Traditional Knowledge Study of Arctic Red and Mackenzie River Fisheries
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: Gwich’in people living in Tsiigehtchic have fished for broad whitefish, lake whitefish, inconnu, and ciscoes along the Arctic Red and Mackenzie Rivers for generations. Today, fishing is still an important livelihood, and fish comprise a major food source. The proper management of these resources is, therefore, a priority in the community of Tsiighetchic. A five-year study completed by the Gwich’in...
