To gather site specific information and habitat description at and near the existing water intake in order to complete an impact assessment for proposed in-water works (described in the rationale)
Site investigations would include habitat mapping and fish community sampling. The research team are assuming the fish community information will be required as it is understood at this time that no s...

The main objectives of the field work for 2014 to 2018 will be (1) to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality; and (2) to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future.
In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week o...

The main objectives of the field work for 2009 to 2013 will be to determine if the EKATI mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future.
In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler).
During the week of spring freshet, ...

The objective is to describe the terrestrial and aquatic environment in the Yellowknife River between Prosperous Lake and Bluefish Lake. This may include investigating vegetation, water quality, benthic invertebrate populations, and fish. The results will be used to determine the most suitable means of fish habitat compensation, to guide mitigation during construction of the new dam for Bluefish H...
Principal Investigator:Venables, Chandra Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this research project are to:
1) establish evolutionary relationships of diving beetles in the Nearctic, in addition to identifying colonization routes for exemplars in the tribe Agabini;
2) assess genetic diversity of target species and among-population genetic mixing, and compare these data to historical data (where possible) with an aim at assessing latitudinal and historica...
Principal Investigator:Lawson, Nick Licenced Year(s):20122011
The objectives of this project are to characterize the baseline water and sediment quality within the Thor Lake area, and to characterize the baseline aquatic community through the collection of phytoplankton, zooplankton and benthic invertebrates.
Water, sediment and aquatic organisms will be collected from 20 stations within the Thor Lake area. Most stations will be accessed by ATV and/or bo...
Principal Investigator:Hamilton, David Licenced Year(s):
Several stream crossings along the #1 and #7 highways are expected to be suitable candidates for habitat compensation. Aquatic habitat assessments and fish collections at selected stream crossings need to be conducted to confirm fish species presence or absence upstream and downstream of the crossings, to assess habitat conditions and to evaluate fish passage to assist in the development of a fis...
Principal Investigator:Essar, Natasha Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this study is to determine fish presence, distribution and abundance in water bodies in the Project area. The age/size frequency distribution, wintering habitat and spawning habitat will be examined, and the metal burdens determined, along with fish presence and distribution along road and bridge crossings.
The study will use a combination of methods including minnow traps, fyk...

This licence is being issued for the scientific research licence application # 775.
The objective of this study is to understand the diversity and dynamics of shortjaw and blackfin ciscoes in Yellowknife Bay (species diversity, distribution, habitat requirements, growth and reproduction) and establishing long term monitoring, while contributing to community outreach and education.
Principal Investigator:Uren, Shane Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the proposed work is to collect information on the fish community and fish habitat present in Trudel Creek, and identify the possible positive and negative impacts of reducing flow into the creek if the Taltson Hydro Project is expanded.
The field survey of the fish habitat and community of Trudel Creek and a section of the Taltson River will take place in spring, with the poss...
