Principal Investigator:Freeman, Milton M.R. Licenced Year(s):
The research team will carry out interviews with the Inuvialuit that are knowledgable about broad whitefish and its fishery in the local waters. Data to be obtained include information on the traditional fishery, changes to this fishery, knowledge about the breeding and feeding habits, migrations, parasites and diseases, and effects of the local environmental changes on whitefish....
Principal Investigator:Green, John M. Licenced Year(s):
As part of a long-term study, I will continue to make underwater observations of the benthic fishes found in the shallow waters of Resolute Bay. Some fish will be collected for further laboratory studies in order to examine their food habits, growth rates and population growth rates. The species Gymnelus viridis will be studied in greater detail....
Principal Investigator:Finley, Kerry J. Licenced Year(s):19941993
The researcher and his team will determine numbers, distribution and local movements of bowheads and provide detailed data on the activity budgets and surface-dive parameters of bowheads to correlate with patterns of habitat use. As well, they will document the feeding patterns of bowheads, and are proposing to use satellite telemetry to study the larger scale movements of bowheads in Baffin Bay....
Principal Investigator:Graham, Mark Licenced Year(s):
The researcher and his team will use several species of planktonic and benthic invertebrates from Lancaster Sound region to evaluate the metabolic cost of making a living in the Arctic. Oxygen consumption techniques will be used as a metabolic indicy. Trophic status of specimens will be evaluated later by stable isotope analysis....
Principal Investigator:Romo, J.T. Licenced Year(s):
The project examines the effects of a high-density muskoxen populations on a sedge meadow plant community. Two fences exist at the study site to exclude muskoxen and thus provide an ungrazed area used for comparison with the grazed area. Plant species abundance, plant height, grazing use of plant species and weight of plants are some of the data that will be compared among grazed and ungrazed are...
Principal Investigator:Hop, Haakon Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher and his assistant will collect Arctic cod. Samples of these will be taken and studied to investigate the feeding ecology of Arctic cod and the energy flow through Arctic cod from zooplankon to marine mammals and sea birds....
Principal Investigator:Stewart, Robert E.A. Licenced Year(s):1992
This study involves the weighing, measuring and sampling of ringed seals which are harvested during normal hunting activities around Pangnirtung. Sampling includes the collection of various tissues and organs. This information will be used to estimate how quickly the ringed seal population replaces harvested animals....
Principal Investigator:Henry, Gregory Licenced Year(s):1991
The Researcher and his team will assist the community of Sanikiluaq and the local Hunters and Trappers Association who are concerned about managing the reindeer herd for sustained meat production. In 1978 60 reindeer were introduced on the Belcher Islands and the herd has grown to approximately 530 in 1990....
Principal Investigator:Sandstrom, Steve Licenced Year(s):
The Fieldwork will involve removing fish from selected pools by a number of methods including electroshocking, seine and angling. They will be anaesthetized, weighed, measured and tagged. The researcher estimates that no more than 5% of the total catch will be dead sampled....
Principal Investigator:Meier, Sharon Licenced Year(s):1991
Ms. Meier and her assistant will study plant-insect relationships and factors which play determining roles in the lives of organisms inhabiting the Arctic environment....
