7 Mine Site Project
Principal Investigator: Widmeyer, Joline
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The objective of this study is to identify what fish species are in Ruth Lake and Bullmoose Lake and to conduct tissue sampling which will assist in determining if the fish in these lakes are bioaccumulating heavy metals. Fish will be sampled using techniques such as minnow trapping, seining, gill netting, angling and possibly boat electrofishing. Nets and minnow traps may be left at the sam...

Nonacho Lake Trout Study Program
Principal Investigator: Cote, Jason E
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The objectives of the field program are to quantify egg deposition by depth on available habitat for fourteen known or suspected representative shallow reefs and for ten representative deep water reefs in Nonacho Lake, also to conduct mercury sampling in Lake Trout from this lake. At each of the known or suspected lake trout spawning reefs, a total of 10 numbered egg nets will be buried in cobb...

Enhanced Investigations of the Factors affecting Long-term Contaminant Trends in Predatory Fish in Great Slave Lake, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: For several years, studies have been conducted to find out if contaminant levels are changing in lake trout and burbot in Great Slave Lake. The researchers have been seeing some changes with mercury levels increasing and HCH levels declining in these fish. However, there have been other changes in the fish, especially lake trout which appear to contain less fat and to be feeding closer to shore th...

Giant Mine Phase 3 EEM
Principal Investigator: Machtans, Hilary
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010
Summary: The objective of the study is to examine fish health of two small-bodied species in the exposure and reference areas – likely slimy sculpin and ninespine stickleback. A small-bodied fish survey will occur within the exposure area (mouth of Baker Creek) and a reference area (Yellowknife River/Yellowknife Bay). Small-bodied fish will be captured and measured for weight and fork length, using bea...

Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway Project
Principal Investigator: Moore, Steve M
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The objectives of this study are to determine the presence of fish and the quality of fish habitat at stream crossings along the proposed road alignment. They will be achieved through observations, measurements, and surveys carried out during freshet. These observations will provide an indication of seasonal habitat use at high water, when connectivity to upstream habitats may exist. Similarly, ...

Molecular analysis of evolutionary change in stickleback populations
Principal Investigator: Shapiro, Michael D.
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2008 2007 2005 2004 2002 2001 2000
Summary: The researcher plans to collect stickleback fish from Fox Holes Lakes. These fish will be used for laboratory experiments to determine the genes that control the number, shapes, and sizes of bones in the skeleton. Two members of the research team will travel to Ft. Smith for approximately 5 days during the broader time interval listed (May 1 - June 30 of each year). The most likely time for our...

Cisco diversity in Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: Drygeese, Jennifer
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objectives of the research are to: 1) Confirm the taxonomy of the Cisco of Great Slave Lake; 2) Characterize age structure and growth of individuals; 3) Determine prey abundance in capture locations; 4) Consult with, and educate local aboriginal and non-aboriginal communities by having them assist in data collection and presenting to communities the results of research. The benefits ...

Diavik Fish Palatability & Metals Program
Principal Investigator: English, Colleen J
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2009 2003
Summary: The purpose of the study is to have Aboriginal participation in monitoring programs at the Diavik site; to assess the quality of fish for eating – records of fish taste, smell and texture from fish caught in Lac de Gras; collection of fish tissue samples to analyze for metals concentrations; collection of fish otoliths to determine age of fish; focus on sampling fish of similar size/age in order t...

Fisheries Co-management and Adaptation in a Changing Arctic: A case study of Dolly Varden char subsistence fisheries co-management in Aklavik and Inuvik
Principal Investigator: Patton, Eva
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objectives of this research are to: 1) Describe communication and knowledge sharing linkages among the network of local, regional, and government organizations involved in Dolly Varden char subsistence fisheries management processes. 2) Analyze the role of bridging organizations (Fisheries Joint Management Committee and Gwich’in Renewable Resource Board) in the fisheries co-management proces...

2008 Baseline studies for Avalon Ventures Ltd. proposed Thor Lake Rare Earth Metals Project (Fisheries component)
Principal Investigator: Machnik, Simon
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009 2008
Summary: This licence is issued for the scientific research application #915. The objective of this research is to provide a baseline information on the fish population and habitat in and around the Thor Lake area. Fish samples will be examined in eleven lakes (Thor, Elbow, Long, U, Great Slave (docking site only), Fred, Cressy, A, South Tardiff, North Tardiff, Thorn, and Megan) and four streams (Fr...
