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...

Biological studies of waters along the proposed Mackenzie Gas Pipeline route - Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: This study is designed to fill gaps in Environment Canada’s understanding of the aquatic environment potentially impacted by various aspects of the Mackenzie Gas Project (MGP). Potential stressors including: increased erosion, nutrient releases from sewage discharges, other chemical releases, water withdrawals, impacts of barge traffic, increased atmospheric emissions, etc. The focus will be on th...

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...

Fish health and population assessment adjacent to Diavik mining activities on Lac de Gras.
Principal Investigator: Gray, Michelle A
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: Research team members will be transported to site via Diavik air charters. Field collections will be conducted from boats provided by Diavik. The different collection gear types will be gillnets, trapnets, and angling. The target sample sizes at each of three sites will be a maximum of 100 lake trout, and 100 whitefish or cisco (to be determined based on catch success rates). Twenty fish of eac...

2005 Fish and Fish Habitat Surveys for the Nailii Hydro Project
Principal Investigator: Buckland, Laurie L
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: The Wha Ti Charter Community proposes to develop a run-of-river hydro facility on the La Martre river. The isolated community would like to replace its current diesel generator with a more sustainable, energy efficient and less costly system. An environm...

ISR Marine Exploratory Fishery
Principal Investigator: Stabler, James Matt
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2005
Summary: This is a continuation of the ISR exploratory fishery initiated in 2003. The program is part of a larger experimental fishery investigation aimed at providing information required to assess the potential of initiating small-scale, community-based commerc...

Molecular analysis of evolutionary change in stickleback populations
Principal Investigator: Shapiro, Michael D.
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2008 2007 2005 2004 2002 2001 2000
Summary: The researchers would like to collect stickleback fish in Fox Holes Lakes. These fish will be used for laboratory crosses to determine which genes control the number, shapes, and sizes of bones in the skeleton. The research team will consist of Dr. Michael Shapiro and one other member of the Research Team. They will access Fox Holes Lake by car, since a road provides direct access to the lakesh...

2005 Winter and Spring Aquatic Surveys in the Deh Cho Region
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The researchers did a number of baseline studies during 2001 through 2004 as part of the Mackenzie Gas Project. These studies are continuing in 2005. Local knowledge and technical/scientific research is being used to design plans, assess impacts, and develop environmental protection plans. The aquatics field crews will consist of two Mackenzie Project Environment Group researchers and a local as...
