2017 Baseline monitoring of marine productivity and oceanography spanning the Northwest Passage using ships of opportunity
Principal Investigator: Fisher, Jonathan AD
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The first objective is to collect, analyze and report the findings from station-based and continuous plankton sampling and data on depth, temperature and salinity in the upper water column throughout Canada’s Northwest Passage. As a contribution to marine climate change research, this program will provide northern communities with the first regional-scale view of marine productivity—thereby provid...


NATCL Cantung 2017 EEM Program
Principal Investigator: Carson, Richard J
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2015
Summary: The objectives are to evaluate if there are differences in biological parameters among study sites and between years at the Tungsten Mine site; as well as to determine whether observed differences from the most recent (2015) Environmental Effects Monitoring study are still present and whether any differences are the result of mining practices. The study objectives are to evaluate fish health, ...


Sanguez Lake Fish Down Study
Principal Investigator: Low, George
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: Objectives of this research are to: 1) establish a population estimate of walleye in Sanguez Lake; 2) establish an additional estimate of fish mercury concentrations in walleye and pike. In 2013, mean mercury concentration in walleye was 0.71 mg/kg wet weight, and in pike was 1.09 mg/kg wet weight; 3)reduce the number of walleye and pike adults such that predation on walleye recruits decreases....


Horn River Creel Survey and Stock Study
Principal Investigator: Low, George
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: It is the objective of this project to collect information on the walleye population from the Horn River which can be used for managing the fishery and possibly changing the regulations. In order to reach this objective the following goals have been set out: 1. to collect population structure and spawning information by setting gill nets of varying mesh size and biologically sampling a portion of...


Paulatuk Whitefish Assessment
Principal Investigator: Ruben, Diane
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objectives of the research are to conduct an assessment of whitefish diet and contaminants. Two technicians will collect approximately 60 samples over 7 days at Billy’s Creek in July 2017 and an additional 60 samples at the Hornaday River in August 2017, collecting data on: species, location, date/time, catch effort/gear type, length, weight, sex, maturity, otolith, stomach content (frozen)...


How will fish communities in Gwich’in and Inuvialuit lakes respond to climate change?
Principal Investigator: Gray, Derek K
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The purpose of this project is to obtain baseline data for fish communities in Gwich’in Settlement Area (GSA) lakes and use these data to predict future changes in fish communities caused by climate change. Specific objectives are to: 1) develop a baseline data set for fish populations, fish habitat, water quality, and water temperature for small and medium sized lakes within the Mackenzie ...


Spatial and long-term trends in persistent organic contaminants and metals in fish from the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1) continue to investigate trends in mercury, metals and persistent organic contaminants (POCs) in lake trout harvested from two locations (West Basin near Hay River, East Arm at Lutsel K’e) and burbot harvested from one location (West Basin at Fort Resolution) in Great Slave Lake in 2017 to further extend the long-term (1993-2015: POCs, 1993-2016 mercury a...


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...


A21 De-Fishing Program
Principal Investigator: Wells, David A
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The purpose of this project is to remove the majority of fish from within the A21 dike and transfer into Lac de Gras to allow for dewatering and construction to occur. The General Fish-out Protocol separates fishing effort into two phases. The Phase 1 fishing effort will begin with short duration gill nets and trap nets to target live release of fish into Lac de Gras. Fish captured will be tran...


NTPC Bluefish Hydro Repairs
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective is to describe the aquatic environment in the Yellowknife River between Bluefish Lake and Prosperous Lake as per the Fisheries Authorization and the Water Licence. This may include investigating aquatic vegetation, water quality and quantity, benthic invertebrates, fish and substrate. The results will be used to determine the most suitable means of fish habitat compensation or produc...
