Testing molecular and otolith tools to investigate population-of-origin and migration in Arctic cisco found in the Colville River, Alaska
Principal Investigator: Nielsen, Jennifer L.
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: This study aims to use genetic markers and otolith microchemistry to determine if differences exist between putative Arctic cisco spawning aggregations in tributaries of the Mackenzie River (Peel and Arctic Red rivers); and, if differences do exist, to use this information to identify population-of-origin for fish caught in the Colville River subsistence fishery. During the summer or fall (1 Au...

Yukon North Slope charr tagging project
Principal Investigator: Stabler, Matt
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: Dolly varden charr that use the Babbage, Firth, Big Fish and Rat Rivers spend the summer months in the estuary off of the Yukon North Slope. It is not yet known to what extent charr from each of these rivers mix while they are together during the summer. The researchers will be at King Point during the course of other duties and will catch and radio tag ten charr in order to monitor the fish's m...

Broad Whitefish Pilot Tagging Project
Principal Investigator: Babaluk, John
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: The researchers will assess the feasibility of tagging large numbers of broad whitefish in the Mackenzie River Delta. Various fishing gear will be tested to evaluate effectiveness for capture and release of fish. The tagging program may be used to train local natives in tagging methods and techniques. Recovery of tagged fish and/or tags will be effected through active recovery from Inuvialuit f...
