Temporal trend studies of trace metals and halogenated organic contaminants (HOCs), including new and emerging persistent compounds, in Mackenzie River burbot, Fort Good Hope, NWT
Principal Investigator: Stern, Gary
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The short-term goals are to determine if 2018 burbot contaminant concentrations: 1) remain below Health Canada guidelines (i.e. <0.5 ppm mercury per gram fish); and 2) are associated with dietary indicators to determine the influence of diet (via stable isotope ratios) on contaminant concentrations in current fish, although previous results suggested no association (Carrie et al. 2010); as well as...


Spatial and long-term trends in persistent organic contaminants and metals in lake trout and burbot from Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2016
Summary: 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...


Spatial and long-term trends in persistent organic contaminants and metals in lake trout and burbot from the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: This study is continuing to investigate whether contaminant levels are changing in fish in the Northwest Territories with a focus on Great Slave Lake which the research team have been studying since the early 1990s. The research team plan to collect lake trout from Great Slave Lake (Hay River area and Lutsel K’e area). The team also plan to collect burbot from the Lutsel K’e and Fort Resolution ar...


Loche Liver Study
Principal Investigator: Thompson, Amy L
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application # 778. 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...


Ecological Conditions in the Proposed Discharge Route of the Colomac Mine, NT
Principal Investigator: McGurk, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: 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...


Spatial and long-term trends in persistent organic contaminants and metals in lake trout and burbot in Great Slave Lake/Temporal trends and spatial variations in persistent organic pollutants and metals in sea run char from the Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: This study is looking at the contaminant levels in lake trout and burbot in Great Slave Lake and in arctic char after their return from feeding in the ocean. Twenty burbot and twenty lake trout will be collected from the West Basin of Great Slave Lake by...


Atmospheric contaminant inputs to and impacts on Lac Belot
Principal Investigator: Lockhart, W.L.
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: 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...
