Dolly Varden Char Assessment in the Peel Plateau
Principal Investigator: Maier, Kris
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to re-assess the anadromous component of the known Vittrekwa River Dolly Varden char population; 2) to investigate & assess other potential suitable Dolly Varden habitat; and 3) to confirm the presence of Dolly Varden char in the Stony Creek watershed. For the Vittrekwa River the research team plans to construct a fixed weir which will trap se...

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...

2008-2010 Baseline Studies for Avalon Ventures Ltd. Proposed Thor Lake Rare Earth Metals Project-Fisheries Component
Principal Investigator: Lawson, Nick
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009 2008
Summary: The fisheries portion of this baseline program has three primary objectives: to identify the fish species composition in a subset of the lakes and streams near the Thor Lake project area, to identify existing fish habitat in those lakes and streams, and to measure the current levels of mercury, rare earth elements and other trace elements in fish tissues. A secondary objective of the program is to...

Cisco diversity in Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: Drygeese, Jennifer
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objectives of the research are to: 1) Confirm the taxonomy of the Cisco of Great Slave Lake; 2) Characterize age structure and growth of individuals; 3) Determine prey abundance in capture locations; 4) Consult with, and educate local aboriginal and non-aboriginal communities by having them assist in data collection and presenting to communities the results of research. The benefits ...

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...

2008 Field Monitoring – Matthews Lake and Area Fish Habitat Restoration and Enhancement Project
Principal Investigator: Scott, Janet L
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: This licence was issued for the application no. 802. The objective of the 2008 fieldwork is to monitor vegetation, invertebrates, and fish populations associated with lakeshore and stream habitat restoration and enhancement. Data will be used to evaluate the continuing success and effectiveness of restored or enhanced stream and lakeshore habitats against control sites, through time. Field ...

Selwyn Project Fisheries Baseline Study
Principal Investigator: Essar, Natasha
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: 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...

Molecular and otolith tools to investigate population of origin of Arctic cisco
Principal Investigator: Nielsen, Jennifer L.
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: This study aims to: 1) use genetics and otolith (ear bone) microchemistry to determine if differences exist between collections of Arctic cisco (herring) made from tributaries of the Mackenzie River (Canada) and the Colville River (Alaska) and 2) use differences to identify population-of-origin of fish caught in the Colville River subsistence fishery. Approximately 60 Arctic cisco will be colle...

MacTung Project - 2007 Environmental Baseline Studies
Principal Investigator: Hoos, Rick
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: Objectives of the aquatics studies are to determine fish presence/absence, characterize habitat and add to data collected in a similar programme in 2006. The objective of the water-quality sampling is to continue collection of data in streams and tributaries which flow through the project area. Hydrometric monitoring will enhance the flow history of streams down-gradient of the site. The objective...

Assessment of lake trout stocks in Great Bear Lake
Principal Investigator: Howland, Kimberly
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005
Summary: The objectives of this study are to: 1) gather baseline data on size and age structure, fecundity (egg number per female), growth and mortality of Dease, Smith, McVicar, McTavish, Keith arm lake trout. A different arm will be sampled each year over a 5 year time period. 2) To determine if lake trout are genetically distinct between basins. 3) To determine the extent of movements (if any) by lake t...
