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, ...


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...


EKATI Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Hayward, April
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2017 to 2021 will be:1) to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality; and 2) to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future. In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 2.5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week o...


The Courageous Lake Project
Principal Investigator: Wen, Marc
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of the proposed studies to be conducted at Courageous Lake is to collect baseline data collection is planned to characterize the environmental (physical and biological) and social and economic setting in the proposed project area. Specifically, data collection is planned to characterize the following environmental components: air quality, noise, hydrology, bathymetry, hydrogeology, a...


PWGSC Gordon Lake Environmental Site Assessments
Principal Investigator: Nyman, Jeff
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this program is to determine the environmental and physical conditions at nine sites on Gordon Lake. This will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts in soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater, and the identification of any hazardous or non-hazardous materials. In addition, samples of biota (including vegetation, fish, benthic invertebrates) m...


Northwest Territories Power Corporation Twin Gorges Aquatic Effects Monitoring Plan and Sediment and Erosion Management Plan
Principal Investigator: Byrne, Geraldine
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The Aquatic Effects Monitoring Plan (AEMP) and Sediment and Erosion Management Plan (SEMP) are requirements under water license MV2011L0002 issued by the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board (MVLWB). The objective of the AEMP is to monitor and identify potential short-term, long-term and cumulative changes throughout the Taltson River aquatic environment. The objective of the SEMP is to identify...


Diavik Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wells, David A
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: To revisit fixed sample stations at near-field, mid-field and far-field sites over the course of the year in an effort to determine any seasonal variation that may exist and confirm impact predictions. The study will encompass the following water based parameters: water quality, zooplankton & phytoplankton biomass and taxonomy, benthic invertebrate analysis and sediment chemistry. This program als...


The Continuation of a Community-led Fish Monitoring Study in Déline, NT 2012
Principal Investigator: Macdonald, Colin R
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009
Summary: To determine the levels of potential chemicals of concern in three major fish species through the analysis of muscle and liver samples for mercury, radionuclides and a number of elements. Fish of three species (lake trout, lake whitefish and lake herring) will be collected in the Keith Arm of Great Bear Lake near the community of Deline. Approximately 15 trout and 10 whitefish and 10 herring wi...


Fish Habitat Survey and Bathymetry Survey for the South Parsons Lake Gas Supply Project, NWT
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: A Fish Habitat Survey and Bathymetry Survey are required for the proposed South Parsons Lake Gas Supply Project. The objective of the surveys is to gather baseline data regarding watercourse crossings and lakes in support of documents submitted for regulatory approval, to fulfill Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) requirements and to meet Transport Canada’s review of navigable waters. IMG-Golde...
