Arctic Red River Headwaters (ARRH) Fisheries Assessment
Principal Investigator: Maier, Kris
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to determine what fish species are present in the Arctic Red River Headwaters (AARH), and what areas in the Arctic Red River Headwaters are important fish habitats. The intent is to use varying fisheries assessment techniques (angling, electofishing and gillnetting) to assess various suitable habitats in the ARRH for the presence of fish. Sites will b...

Fish Inventory Study in EL494
Principal Investigator: Hansen, Ken
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objective of the project is to identify the fish species present, gather population data on surveyed fish species, assess fish habitat characteristics, and identify benthic invertebrate species present in waterbodies in the area of Husky’s proposed exploration activity. Five streams and nine lakes are proposed to be assessed. Backpack electrofishing and fyke nets will be used to assess the ...

2013 Yellowknife Bay Baseline Data Collection for Aquatics and Fisheries
Principal Investigator: Kramer, Tara
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The primary objective of this research program is to collect baseline data on: 1) water chemistry, limnologic profiles, sediments, plankton, benthic invertebrates and aquatic habitat; and, 2) fish presence and collection of fish tissue for metal analysis. Aquatics: The Aquatics field program will be conducted in the spring of 2013. During the field program, the following samples will be coll...

Dolly Varden Char Assessment in the Peel Plateau
Principal Investigator: Maier, Kris
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to re-assess the anadromous component of the known Vittrekwa River Dolly Varden char population; 2) to investigate & assess other potential suitable Dolly Varden habitat; and 3) to confirm the presence of Dolly Varden char in the Stony Creek watershed.
