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...

The goal of the initiative is to document and analyze Inuit women's roles in Arctic fisheries in order to promote and support their participation in decision-making processes in this sector. This initiative seeks to identify and remove barriers to Inuit...
Principal Investigator:Sitinvar, Andreasi Licenced Year(s):
A commercial weir will be installed and operated at Gore Bay for the purpose of conducting a test commercial Arctic char fishery. All fish will be held in an holding pen until the quota (8000 lb.) is estimated to have been captured. The daily upstream migration of Arctic char will be recorded until the quota is reached. Fish will then be gutted, packed and transported to the fish processing pla...

The Department of Renewable Resources, in consultation with Hunters and Trappers organizations, will continue their survey of the types and quantities of marine species found in the waters near Holman, Taloyoak, Gjoa Haven, Cambridge Bay, Coppermine and Umingmaktok. The researchers are interested in knowing if there are sufficient shrimp, scallops, cod, clams, crab or turbot for supporting commer...
Principal Investigator:Simpson, Larry Licenced Year(s):
The Baffin Regional Sub-Committee for Fisheries is examining the economic potential for the harvest of groundfish, scallops, crabs and shrimp in the Broughton Island area (from Cape Mercy to Cape Hooper). As part of a larger multi-year project directed by the Sub-Committee, this research will provide estimates of the types and numbers of fish and shellfish that may be available for harvest. From...
Principal Investigator:Dahlke, Lothar Licenced Year(s):
Three crews of two people each will be stationed at the commercial fishing camps to obtain biological and catch effort data from the fisherman. A supervisor will oversee the project in the field and set some experimental nets in the vicinity of the commercial nets at one of the camps. A minimum of 200 whitefish samples will be obtained from the fishermen's catch....

Anadromous arctic charr, currently viewed of as the eastern form, are known to spawn and overwinter in the DeSalis River system. Residents of Sachs Harbour have expressed an interest in harvesting arctic charr from this system for consumption and commercial purposes. Two resident monitors will sample the subsistence catch of this stock in order to estimate stock size and age. Whole fish will be ...
Principal Investigator:Chiperzak, Doug Licenced Year(s):
The potential of marine fisheries stocks in the Beaufort Sea to support commercial fisheries is unknown at present. I propose to develop the local expertise to conduct offshore winter fisheries for greenland halibut (turbot) using long-line techniques, and to assess the potential of any stocks present to support a commercial fishery. Data will be collected to assess stock characteristics pertine...

Begun in 1991, the study will continue to examine the economic and social costs and benefits of the fishery on the Pangnirtung community. The study will also investigate the role of commercial fisheries in the development of eastern arctic communities....
Principal Investigator:Harbicht, Stephen Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher and his assistants will set gill nets in Kam Lake, areas IV and V of Great Slave Lake and Yellowknife Bay to collect fish samples for analysis to determine baseline levels of heavy metals in fish tissues....
