This study is designed to find out whether contaminant levels are changing in fish (lake trout and cisco) in Great Bear Lake.
The research team require fall-caught fish for this study. Twenty whole lake trout and 20 whole cisco of a range of sizes are required from Great Bear Lake. The fish will be frozen immediately after capture and shipped to Environment Canada-Saskatoon. The fish will then ...
Principal Investigator:Drygeese, Jennifer Licenced Year(s):
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 ...

The objective of this study is to understand the diversity and dynamics of shortjaw and blackfin ciscoes in Yellowknife Bay (species diversity, distribution, habitat requirements, growth and reproduction) and establishing long term monitoring, while contributing to community outreach and education.

This study aims to use genetic markers and otolith microchemistry to determine if differences exist between putative Arctic cisco spawning aggregations in tributaries of the Mackenzie River (Peel and Arctic Red rivers); and, if differences do exist, to use this information to identify population-of-origin for fish caught in the Colville River subsistence fishery.
During the summer or fall (1 Au...
Principal Investigator:Howard, Kimberly Licenced Year(s):
The main objectives of this study are to determine baseline population status and develop reliable indicators of population abundance and mortality rates of key harvested fish species (lake whitefish and broad whitefish) in the Travaillant Lake system and to identify and determine the relative abundance and species composition of other species within the lake system.
Field crews will be transp...
Principal Investigator:Bond, W.A. Licenced Year(s):
Since 1989 the Department of Fisheries and Oceans have conducted trap netting studies to monitor fish movements in Wood Bay near the mouth of the Anderson River. This is the last year of this study. They will examine the movements of the Arctic cisco within Liverpool Bay....
Principal Investigator:Griffiths, William Licenced Year(s):
William Griffiths and his team will be using nets to sample and tag Arctic Cisco along the Beaufort Sea coastline. A $5.00 reward is offered for each fish tag returned. They are also collecting fish in the Mackenzie River at the junctions of the Liard, Great Bear, Loon, Mountain, Peel, and Arctic Red rivers. They will either net or purchase the fish to determine whether the fish belong to th...
