Cumulative Impacts Monitoring of Aquatic Ecosystem Health of Yellowknife Bay, Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: Chételat, John
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The main objective of this study is to investigate the ecosystem health of Yellowknife Bay. We will address the following questions through a field study: 1) What is the quality of water and sediment in Yellowknife Bay (focusing on metals, nutrients and cyanobacteria)? 2) What are the main sources and transport pathways of metals accumulating in the food web of Yellowknife Bay? 3) How much of ...


Contaminant Biomonitoring in the Dehcho Region: A Pilot Investigation of the Links Between Contaminant Exposure, Nutritional Status, and Country Food Use
Principal Investigator: Laird, Brian D
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The overall objective of this research is to promote country foods in the Dehcho Region in a way that balances contaminant risks and nutrient benefits in order to maximize nutrient status while minimizing mercury exposure. The research team will work towards this objective through the implementation of pilot research that will: 1) develop a locally-relevant dietary survey, 2) evaluate the dietary ...


Updating data on mercury levels in food fish species in lakes used by Deh Cho communities
Principal Investigator: Low, George
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014 2012 2011
Summary: The objectives of this project are: 1) To determine which lakes are important as food sources in four Dehcho communities and which fish species are used for human food from these lakes using Traditional Knowledge. 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 i...


Edzo Water Intake - Aquatic Assessment
Principal Investigator: Lavictoire, Michelle L
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: To gather site specific information and habitat description at and near the existing water intake in order to complete an impact assessment for proposed in-water works (described in the rationale) Site investigations would include habitat mapping and fish community sampling. The research team are assuming the fish community information will be required as it is understood at this time that no s...


Development of small bodied fish species as a biomonitoring tool to detect environmental change in northern rivers
Principal Investigator: MacLatchy, Deborah
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1. Collect and sample small bodied fish species (emerald and spottail shiners) at the same two sites as Sept 2013 (sewage effluent outflow pipe at Fort Smith and upstream near the boat launch) and at other accessible, habitat-appropriate sites (mouth of Salt River, exposed bitumen sites, above the rapids). The fish collections will be conducted acc...


Cumulative impacts of metal deposition in the NWT: Using lead isotopes to trace local, regional and long-range sources
Principal Investigator: Chételat, John
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: Yellowknife Bay on Great Slave Lake is a water body of cultural, subsistence and recreational importance for the Yellowknives Dene First Nation (YKDFN) and residents of Yellowknife. The ecosystem health of Yellowknife Bay has been impacted by historical mining releases of metals (particularly arsenic), as well as long-range atmospheric transport of metals such as mercury from far-away human emissi...


Mayoklihok Lake fisheries survey
Principal Investigator: Hynes, Kristin
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this research project is to determine what species inhabit the lake and collect measurements and samples from the fish to determine age, length, weight, contaminant levels, and general condition to gain more information on population structure. Information will be reported back to the Olokhaktomiut Hunters and Trappers Committee (OHTC). Two monitors will use fishing nets and/...


Marian Watershed Community-Based Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Garner, Kerri
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The Tlicho Lands Moratorium was lifted in June 2013, and development pressure is expected to increase on Tlicho Lands. As Tlicho Lands are in relatively pristine condition, the intent of this study is to begin to collect baseline data at sites prioritized by community members away from specific project footprints in order to analyze the cumulative impacts of development, climate change, and increa...


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...


SWEEP - The Slave Watershed Environmental Effects Program
Principal Investigator: Jones, Paul D
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The SWEEP program is being used to establish a community based environmental monitoring program in the Slave River and delta. The project has been funded for 2 years by the Canadian Water Network (CWN) to develop a new 'node' for community based monitoring which is harmonized with those already established by other CWN projects. SWEEP will develop a suite of both 'community based' and 'western s...
