Principal Investigator:Evans, Marlene Licenced Year(s):
This study is continuing to investigate whether contaminant levels are changing in fish in Great Slave Lake which the research team have been studying since the early 1990s. The team plan to collect lake trout from the Hay River and Lutsel K’e areas. The team also plan to collect burbot from the Lutsel K’e and Fort Resolution areas of Great Slave Lake, and northern pike from the Fort Resolution ar...

This research will examine the livers of Loche fish in the GSA. This research will be completed through: 1) field collection of loche in each of the GSA communities; 2) biological sampling of loche; 3) analysis of stomach health and aging (using isotopes). More specifically, biological measurements will be taken for ea...

The researchers will measure water quality, aquatic ecology and the status of fish populations in ponds and lakes along the proposed discharge route of mine water from the Colomac Mine (North Pond, L-Shaped Lake, Paddle Lake, Lake 315, and Lower Lake) and compare those data with data collected from reference lakes (Steeves Lake, Baton Lake, and Spanner Lake). Work will include taking three samples...
Principal Investigator:Lockhart, W.L. Licenced Year(s):
As part of this ongoing study, sediment samples will be taken fron the deepest locations of Lac Belot and Colville Lake. These samples will be analyzed for the presence of contaminants and dated. These analyses will allow the researcher to construct histories of the input of contaminants to these lakes. In addition, lake trout, whitefish and burbot will be collected to determine what contaminan...
