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 ...

Diavik Palatability and Tissue Chemistry
Principal Investigator: Moore, Kristin M
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2009 2003
Summary: The primary objective of the 2012 program is to obtain feedback from community members relating to Lac de Gras lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush) taste, texture, general condition and health. A secondary objective is to meet requirements set out in the Fisheries Authorization for Works or Undertaking Affecting Fish Habitat. Fish collection will primarily be conducted using nets set out on...

Giant Mine Phase 4 Environmental Effects Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Harris, Katherine M.
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010
Summary: The objective of this study is to examine the health of two small-bodied fish species (Slimy Sculpin and Ninespine Stickleback) exposed to treated effluent from Giant Mine. Data collected during this study will be assessed to determine if there are treated effluent related effects. The study will be conducted within the exposure areas (Baker Creek and Yellowknife Bay) and the reference areas (Yell...

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 ...

A418 Fish Salvage
Principal Investigator: Wytrychowski, Scott I
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: Diavik Diamond Mine requires construction of a system of water retention dikes in Lac de Gras to facilitate open-pit mining under dry conditions. The water retention dikes will result in a loss of fish habitat within the footprint of each dike. Diavik Diamond Mines Inc. (DDMI) has received authorization to construct the dikes in Lac de Gras. As a condition of the project’s authorization, Diavik pl...

Arctic Red River Fish Study
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: Currently, little information exists on the fisheries resources of the Arctic Red River. Baseline information on fisheries resources is required to make sound management decisions. This information (e.g., biological characteristics of fish: length, weight, age at maturity, migration patterns, date of spawning; presence/absence of species) is collected through long-term studies, traditional knowled...

ArcticNet Theme 1: Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The main objective of this project is to start long-term marine observatories in order to study variability and change in the context of climate change in the coastal Canadian Arctic. Field work for this project started in Fall 2004 when six observatories (instrument moorings) were deployed in the Mackenzie Shelf/Amundsen Gulf area. As part of this year’s expedition, the six moorings will be r...
