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...


Bluefish Lake Mercury Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Dewar, David J
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The Objectives of this research project are to: 1.) gather information in 2012 on the small-bodied and Young of Year fish in Bluefish Lake that may be available for monitoring as well as determine the most suitable methods and locations for their capture in order to finalize the proposed mercury study design, and 2.) complete monitoring between 2013 and 2015 as described in the finalized mercury ...


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...


Fish presence and lake bathymetry
Principal Investigator: Wilcockson, John B
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The objective of this research is to collect bathymetry information on lakes to estimate water volume of each lake and therefore maximum volume of water which can be withdrawn. A subset of lakes will also be assessed for fish presence. A gps-referenced depth sounder will be used to record detailed lake depth information. On a subset of lakes the research team will utilize several fish capture t...


Aquatic Environmental Effects Monitoring - Flat River at Cantung Mine
Principal Investigator: Hoos, Rick
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2009 2002
Summary: The objectives of this research are: (1) to determine length, weight, and general condition of 100 fish and tissue analysis of not more than 10 fish (Slimy Sculpin- Cottus cognatus) per site at five site locations in the Flat River: two locations upstream of the CanTung mine site, one adjacent to the mine site and at two locations downstream of the mine site; and, (2) to determine sediment and w...


Lake trout diversity in Great Bear Lake: do deep-water forms exist?
Principal Investigator: Muir, Andrew M
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010
Summary: The objective of this project is to sample known and newly discovered deepwater (>50 m) habitats southwest of the Narakay Islands and within the McTavish Arm to determine if a deepwater humper or siscowet lake trout form occurs. Data on the occurrence and characteristics of deepwater lake trout forms from Great Bear Lake will fill in gaps in this North American lake trout dataset. Currently it is ...


Evolution of Arctic Lampreys
Principal Investigator: Renaud, Claude B.
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The purpose of this study is to know more about the lampreys of NWT. It is part of a larger scale study of lampreys of the genus Lethenteron across the northern hemisphere (Eurasia and North America). In the Northwest Territories (NWT) part of the study our objectives are: 1- To collect a total of about 30 larvae at least 60 mm in total length for each of the two species from localities where a...


Impact of climate change on freshwater fish mercury levels
Principal Investigator: Stern, Gary
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The objective of this study is to collect fish from lakes and tributary rivers of lakes under fish (mercury) consumption advisories and compare with older data from government if available (DFO, Environment Canada), and to collect and analyse sediment cores from these lakes to see how lake ecosystem changes relate to fish mercury levels. There are two main methods involved in this work. For fis...


Lands, Lakes and Livelihoods: women’s subsistence fishing in Paulatuk, NT
Principal Investigator: Todd, Zoe SC
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: The researcher will study how people fish in Paulatuk today, how people talk about fishing and how fishing was practiced and characterised in the past. The researcher’s intent is to gain insight into contemporary relationships between people and the environment and inform anthropological discourse on women’s harvesting activity in arctic Canada. This project involves anthropological fieldwork,...
