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...

Ecological Assessment Field Work for Lue Túé Sulái (the Five Fish Lakes) Candidate Cultural Conservation Area
Principal Investigator: Haas, Claudia A
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: This project is to fill gaps in ecological information on a Candidate Protected Area while it makes its way through the NWT Protected Areas Strategy (PAS) process. This information will be used by the working group to make recommendations on final boundary and management planning for the area. The study will be done at the same time as a study on mercury in fish being conducted by the Dehcho F...

La Martre River Fall Fisheries Program
Principal Investigator: Cote, Jason E
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: Fieldwork is required to determine the potential effects of a ramping event (sudden shutdown of the power generation facility) on fish and fish habitat within the lower reaches of the La Martre River. This information would be added to the overall fish and fish habitat effects assessment and will identify potential mitigation measures, if required. Specific objectives of the field program includ...

Exfiltration Fence Habitat Assessment
Principal Investigator: Wilcockson, John B
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objective of this research project is to determine the presence or absence of fish species as part of a habitat assessment of the proposed location for an exfiltration trench (effluent diffuser). Collected fish will be identified, weighted and measured. Electrofishing would be conducted along the banks of a 200m stretch of Prairie Creek, at the Prairie Creek mine site. Electro fishing would...

Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway Project
Principal Investigator: Moore, Steve M
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The objectives of this study are to determine the presence of fish and the quality of fish habitat at stream crossings along the proposed road alignment. They will be achieved through observations, measurements, and surveys carried out during freshet. These observations will provide an indication of seasonal habitat use at high water, when connectivity to upstream habitats may exist. Similarly, ...

Lutsel K'e Hydro Power Project - 2010 Winter Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Cote, Jason E
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: To determine the effects of low-flow conditions on overwintering fish habitats in target area. This will include water depth and velocity transects, fish sampling and dissolved oxygen level measurements. Sampling efforts will be focused on the habitats associated with the diversion reach of the Project and will also include habitats immediately upstream and downstream. At select locations, ic...

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...

Traditional knowledge on Loche
Principal Investigator: Thompson, Amy L
Licenced Year(s): 2007
Summary: This project is divided into two phases: Year 1: Traditional knowledge interviews (this licence) will be conducted in each of the four GSA communities. The objective is to document traditional knowledge about loche biology and loche liver condition. Specifically, questions will be asked about loche spawning, movements, predator-prey relationships, habitat, historic changes, loche livers and tra...

UrEnergy 2006 Screech Lake Baseline Program
Principal Investigator: Schryer, Rick P.
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: Sampling of water, sediment, benthic invertebrates, fish inventories, and fish habitat mapping will be done. Water will be collected for chemical analysis, and limnology measurements taken. Sediment will be collected for chemical analysis and particle size analysis. Benthic invertebrates will be collected for taxonomic identification. Fish species, presence and relative abundance will be determine...

Trudel Creek: Aquatics Assessment for Minimum Flow Threshold
Principal Investigator: Uren, Shane
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The field survey of the fish habitat and community of Trudel Creek and a section of the Taltson River will likely take place during one trip in August, although there is the possibility of a second trip to collect additional information. The field team will fly into Fort Smith and then be transported to the Twin Gorges Camp either by plane or helicopter. Rescan will use a local helicopter company ...
