The primary objective of this project is to enhance Providence Creek to increase arctic grayling (Thymallus arcticus) spawning habitat. This will be done by removing beaver dams which have been shown to decrease usable spawning habitat, and to create new spawning habitat with gravel and boulders.
Another objective of the project is to monitor the arctic grayling population to determine if the ...

The main objectives of this study are to determine baseline population status and develop reliable indicators of population abundance and mortality rates of key harvested fish species (lake whitefish and broad whitefish) in the Travaillant Lake system and to identify and determine the relative abundance and species composition of other species within the lake system.
Field crews will be transp...

Recently BHP Diamonds Canada has "dewatered" a number of lakes and created a diversion channel to re-route water around two open pit mines. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of the diversion canal as habitat before and after it is enhanced with fish habitat structures and also in relation to natural streams in the area. In early spring Arctic grayling will be captured in we...

The researchers have been commissioned by Echo Bay Mines Ltd. to conduct a study on young-of-the-year arctic grayling which are located in a small creek near a tailings pond of the Lupin mine site. Approximately 100 hatched arctic grayling will be caught in order that contaminant analyses can be conducted on the tissues....
