Community-based long-term monitoring of the Peel River near Fort McPherson
Principal Investigator: Moore, Jonathan
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective of this project is to establish a community-based monitoring program in the Peel River watershed, based in Fort McPherson. Previous research has shown that multiple whitefish ecotypes (non-anadromous, semi-anadromous and anadromous), utilize the Peel River as spawning habitat, but it is unclear how much each ecotype contributes to harvester catches. As different ecotypes occupy d...


Understanding changes in aquatic ecosystem health and water quality in the Fort Good Hope – Ramparts Area
Principal Investigator: Gurney, Kirsty E.
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: This project aims to build community partnerships, identify field sites, and develop and implement sampling protocols for long term, community-based, monitoring of wetland ecosystems near Fort Good Hope. Whereas some wetlands in the study area have 1) already been, or 2) are likely to be, impacted by a wide range of industrial activities, including development of oil and gas and associated inf...


Sustainable Water Governance and Indigenous Law Project
Principal Investigator: Bakker, Karen
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The project goal is to enhance effective, equitable Indigenous co-governance of water resources through pursuing five objectives: 1) to critically conceptualize the potential for reciprocal coordination of, and complementarity between, evolving common ("Western") and Indigenous water law and governance frameworks; 2) to develop innovative methods for co-researching Indigenous Water Governance, b...


Metals levels in large bodied fishes near impacted lakes near Yellowknife, NWT
Principal Investigator: Somers, Gila L
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objectives of this project are to collect fish tissue samples from species of subsistence importance to: 1) establish a long-term community monitoring program for contaminants in fish; and 2) monitor potential spatial and temporal trends in metal concentrations (including mercury) in fish tissues within the Yellowknife region. The data acquired will be added to existing and concurrently collec...


Community-Based Water Quality Monitoring in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Beveridge, Meghan
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The purpose of the project is to work in collaboration with Northwest Territories (NWT) communities to collect water quality data to answer community concerns and questions about the health of NWT waters, to enhance understanding of cumulative impacts and to contribute to decision making. There are three associated objectives: 1) collect water quality data at locations throughout the NWT, to ...


Darnley Bay Seal Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Insley, Stephen J
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The goal of this project is to design and maintain a long-term, locally-based, monitoring program focused on ringed seals (Pusa hispida) and bearded seals (Erignathus barbatus) in the Darnley Bay, Sachs Harbour and Ulukhaktok areas of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, NT. To accomplish the objectives, the research team have designed a program to work with the local communities of Paulatuk, Sac...


Understanding Community Based Monitoring Exceedances Through Site Assessments
Principal Investigator: McGeer, Jim
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objectives of this project are to apply short term sublethal exposures to contaminants of concern with locally collected small bodied fish to establish measures of the relative bioavailability and effect in the Slave River. This information will then be applied to the Community Based Monitoring (CBM) program data to assess exceedances in a more comprehensive manner. Small fish (for exampl...


The Bio- Magnification of Mercury within Fish Species of the Deh Cho and Their Varying Levels Among Lakes
Principal Investigator: Swanson, Heidi
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1) determine why fish mercury levels vary among lakes in the Dehcho region; 2) identify best predictors of fish mercury levels; and, 3) determine which fish have the lowest levels of mercury and highest levels of micro-nutrients and fatty acids. The methods for this project include two parts, first is the collection of food web data from each lake...


A Multi-scale Assessment of Cumulative Impacts in the Northern Mackenzie Basin
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: Objective 1: To use satellite imagery (Landsat, QuickBird, InSAR, etc.) to document the rate and extent of landscape change (slumps, subsidence, vegetation change, etc.) in the northern Mackenzie Basin. To quantify landscape disturbances and vegetation regeneration patterns since 1985 the research team will obtain Landsat satellite images that will provide reflectance measurements covering a 1...


Examination of distribution and density of juvenile Dolly Varden char in Fish Creek (Rat River)
Principal Investigator: Maier, Kris
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The research team seek to build on the 2014 success in monitoring habitats and using electrofishing to assess juvenile Dolly Varden occupancy. Specific objectives include: 1) to continue implementing a community-based monitoring program to monitor essential habitats; 2) to further delineate the spatial distribution of juvenile char in the Fish Creek watershed; and, 3) to establish a length at age ...
