Principal Investigator:Clayton, Terry Licenced Year(s):
Researchers will investigate lake trout movements in the vicinity of the Lupin gold mine at Contwoyto Lake. Tagging will be by conventional methods and will also include the use of ultrasonic transmitters which are surgically implanted in lake trout. Fish movements will be monitored at intervals throughout the summer. The primary capture methodology will be angling....
Principal Investigator:Babaluk, John Licenced Year(s):
The researchers will tag broad whitefish in the Mackenzie River Delta in the vicinity of Horseshoe Bend. During this season, fish are moving to areas further upstream. Tagging will provide information about the movements, growth, survival and numbers of whitefish and will contribute to their management. Local residents will take part in a training program on the methods of tagging fish....
Principal Investigator:Stabler, Matt Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Chang-Kue, Ken T.J. Licenced Year(s):
The field work of this project will involve attaching radio tags or transmitters on 20 broad whitefish at a location approximately 40 km from the mouth of the Arctic Red River. The movements of these whitefish from September to the following June can then be monitored to determine their migration routes, spawning areas and overwintering areas. Data from the radio transmitters is collected by a s...
Principal Investigator:Harwood, Lois Licenced Year(s):
This project will involve tagging charr and monitoring their movements. The fish will be tagged at the overwintering site in spring, before they start to migrate downstream. The fish with radio tags will be tracked every 4-6 weeks throughout the spring, summer and fall. Fish caught by the summer fishery at Shingle Point and having floy tags will be recorded. 100 charr each (mostly females) wil...
Principal Investigator:Sandstrom, Steve Licenced Year(s):
The Fieldwork will involve removing fish from selected pools by a number of methods including electroshocking, seine and angling. They will be anaesthetized, weighed, measured and tagged. The researcher estimates that no more than 5% of the total catch will be dead sampled....
Principal Investigator:Griffiths, William Licenced Year(s):
William Griffiths and his team will be using nets to sample and tag Arctic Cisco along the Beaufort Sea coastline. A $5.00 reward is offered for each fish tag returned. They are also collecting fish in the Mackenzie River at the junctions of the Liard, Great Bear, Loon, Mountain, Peel, and Arctic Red rivers. They will either net or purchase the fish to determine whether the fish belong to th...
