The ecology and paleoecology of benthic macroinvertebrates in the Mackenzie Delta region
Principal Investigator: Quinlan, Roberto
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of our study are to 1) establish the importance of lake connectivity in determining the community composition and species richness of the invertebrate community of a lake, and the contribution of lakes of differing connectivity to the regional diversity of the Mackenzie Delta, 2) characterize the response of invertebrate communities to changing peak flood levels to allow prediction ...


NTPC Bluefish Hydro Repairs
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective is to describe the aquatic environment in the Yellowknife River between Bluefish Lake and Prosperous Lake as per the Fisheries Authorization and the Water Licence. This may include investigating aquatic vegetation, water quality and quantity, benthic invertebrates, fish and substrate. The results will be used to determine the most suitable means of fish habitat compensation or produc...


Aquatic Environmental Effects Monitoring - Flat River at Cantung Mine
Principal Investigator: Hoos, Rick
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2009 2002
Summary: The objectives of this research are: (1) to determine length, weight, and general condition of 100 fish and tissue analysis of not more than 10 fish (Slimy Sculpin- Cottus cognatus) per site at five site locations in the Flat River: two locations upstream of the CanTung mine site, one adjacent to the mine site and at two locations downstream of the mine site; and, (2) to determine sediment and w...


Improving Habitat Connectivity to Enhance Productive Capacity of Arctic Freshwater Ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Tonn, William
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of this project are: 1) to study the freshwater ecology, hydrology, and hydraulics of small lakes and streams in the Lac de Gras basin before habitat modification; 2) to monitor the changes in ecosystem productive capacity resulting from habitat modifications designed to increase habitat connectivity and fish passage; and 3) to assess the effectiveness of such habitat modifications...


Bosworth Creek Aquatics and Fisheries Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Blaschuk, Katherine
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: WorleyParsons, on behalf of Imperial Oil, began a benthic invertebrate and fisheries assessment program for the portions of Bosworth Creek adjacent to the Imperial Oil operations in Norman Wells, NWT. The objective of the project is to characterize biophysical conditions in Bosworth Creek in the area surrounding the lower Bosworth Creek Bridge; both upstream and downstream from the location of a f...


Dezé Energy Corporation Ltd. Taltson Expansion Project
Principal Investigator: Azzolini, Louie
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008
Summary: The objective of the first portion of the research is to identify, measure, and characterize lake trout and northern pike spawning habitat in Nonacho Lake and to confirm the presence of lake trout and northern pike juveniles and adults in potential spawning areas. Bathymetric surveys will be conducted at these sites in order to determine the areal extent of habitat loss, and the quality of habit...


Biological Studies of Waters Along the Proposed Mackenzie Gas Project Pipeline Route - Sahtu Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: The research will examine streams possibly affected by the proposed Mackenzie Gas Project pipeline, and streams that can serve as future control/reference sites. Measurements of stream nutrients, metals in stream water, water quality (DO, pH, conductivity, etc.), stream characteristics (flow, width, depth, etc.) and aquatic invertebrate abundance/species composition will be completed. Possible t...


Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program 2007
Principal Investigator: Wytrychowski, Scott I
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The purpose of the 2007 AEMP is to initiate a long term aquatics sampling program in order to produce a data set that will be used in trend analyses to track the overall effects of the project on the aquatic ecosystem of Lac de Gras and to confirm predictions made during the EA. This is achieved by conducting consistent annual sampling at fixed mid-field and far-field stations for which baseline c...


Diavik Diamond Mines Inc. Shoal Habitat Utilization Study 2007
Principal Investigator: Morrison, Scott
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: Consistent with the DFO authorization, the major objectives of this study are to: 1) to provide annual documentation of shoal habitat use by Lake Trout in the vicinity of the mine site. FA Clause 8.1.3 2) to ground truth hydroacustic equipment by capturing fish to identify species, collect life history data, tag, and then release As stated in the Authorization for Works or Undertakings Affec...


De Beers Snap Lake Project -2007 Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Huebert, Ed
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2002 2001 2000 1999
Summary: The objective of this environmental monitoring program is to meet requirements under the Snap Lake Project's Environmental Agreement, Land Use Permit, Water Licence, and Fisheries Authorization, as well as to meet De Beers' corporate commitments to the environment. Information collected during field sampling and observations will build on existing data and will be used towards: 1) contributing to ...
