Baseline monitoring of marine productivity and oceanography spanning the Northwest Passage using ships of opportunity
Principal Investigator: Fisher, Jonathan AD
Licenced Year(s): 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 contributor to marine climate change research, this program will provide northern communities with the first regional-scale view of marine productivity—thereby providi...


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...


Metal levels in large-bodied fishes near impacted lakes near Yellowknife, NWT
Principal Investigator: Somers, Gila L
Licenced Year(s): 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) to 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 coll...


Spatial and long-term trends in persistent organic contaminants and metals in lake trout and burbot from Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This study is continuing to investigate whether contaminant levels are changing in fish in Great Slave Lake which the research team have been studying since the early 1990s. The team plan to collect lake trout from the Hay River and Lutsel K’e areas. The team also plan to collect burbot from the Lutsel K’e and Fort Resolution areas of Great Slave Lake, and northern pike from the Fort Resolution ar...


Monitoring of mercury, flame retardants and other chemicals in lake trout and cisco from Great Bear Lake
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: 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 and Climate Change Canada (ECCC)-Sask...


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 teram seek to build on the 2014 & 2015 success in monitoring habitats and using electrofishing to assess juvenile Dolly Varden occupancy. Specific objectives include: 1) continue implementing a community-based monitoring program to monitor essential habitats; 2) further delineate the spatial distribution of juvenile char in the Fish Creek watershed; and, 3) finalize the occupancy mode...


Enhancement and monitoring of arctic grayling spawning habitat at Providence Creek, NWT
Principal Investigator: Low, George
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The primary objective of this project is to enhance Providence Creek to increase arctic grayling (Thymallus arcticus) spawning habitat. This will be done by removing beaver dams which have been shown to decrease usable spawning habitat, and to create new spawning habitat with gravel and boulders. Another objective of the project is to monitor the arctic grayling population to determine if the ...


Updating data on mercury levels in food fish species in lakes used by Deh Cho communities
Principal Investigator: Low, George
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objectives of this project are: 1) to determine through which lakes are important as food sources in four Dehcho communities and which fish species are used for human food from these lakes; 2) to train community monitors to collect fish and other samples according to Environment Canada and Department of Fisheries and Oceans protocol; 3) to involve local school children in the studies by ...


NTPC Bluefish Hydro Repairs
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 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...


Documenting traditional knowledge of whitefish in Paulatuk, NT
Principal Investigator: Ruben, Diane
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective of the research is to document traditional knowledge and practices of whitefish harvesting in Paulatuk, Northwest Territories. The youth researcher will document traditional knowledge relating to whitefish using semi-structured interviews with elders and active harvesters. The cultural and social benefits of this project include the opportunity that might not always present its...
