Improving Habitat Connectivity to Enhance Productive Capacity of Arctic Freshwater Ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Tonn, William
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: to study the freshwater ecology, hydrology, and hydraulics of small lakes and streams in the Lac de Gras basin before habitat modification; to monitor the changes in ecosystem productive capacity resulting from habitat modifications designed to increase habitat connectivity and fish passage; and to assess the effectiveness of such habitat modifications ...


Baseline Monitoring of Arctic Vegetation and Snow Changes over the Bathurst Caribou Habitat using Satellite Remote Sensing and Community-based Field Observations
Principal Investigator: Chen, Wenjun
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: The goals of this research project are: 1. To fill the information gap on Bathurst caribou summer range conditions using satellite remote sensing data and community-based ground vegetation monitoring 2. To develop a cumulative impact assessment method that makes cumulative impact assessment possible even if data are incomplete and provides timely feedback for guiding the refinement of monitoring...


NTPC Bluefish Hydro Repairs
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of this study is to describe the terrestrial and aquatic environment in the Yellowknife River between Prosperous Lake and Bluefish Lake as per the Fisheries Authorization and the Water Licence. This may include investigating vegetation, water quality, benthic invertebrate populations, and fish. The results will be used to determine the most suitable means of fish habitat compensation...


Environmental Baseline Surveys of the Fortune Minerals Ltd. NICO Project

Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of this research project is to collect baseline environmental information for future environmental effects monitoring. Surveys may include assessments of fish, fish habitat, benthic invertebrates, plankton, water and sediment quality, wetlands and geochemistry. Equipment for surveys will be limited to standard field measuring and surveying equipment, such as automated water qualit...


EBA, Five Mine Sites ESA Update and Remedial Action Plan
Principal Investigator: Farrell, Rory
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: To take specific samples for the completion of a remedial action plan and risk assessment for the Five Mine Sites. The field component of the project will be conducted over a two day period. Limited soil and mine tailing samples from the most contaminated areas of the site will be taken. These areas were previously identified in past environmental site assessments. The samples will be collec...


Nahanni Aster Status Report
Principal Investigator: Harris, Allan G
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The objective of this research project is to conduct fieldwork to determine the population size, distribution, and habitat of Nahanni Aster. Fieldwork will involve helicopter access to hotspring habitats. Presence/absence of Nahanni Aster will be recorded, stems counts will be conducted, and habitat and potential threats will be described. There are possible opportunities to promote the Nahanni ...


Investigating the cumulative effects of environmental change and human activity in the Tathlina watershed
Principal Investigator: Laidlaw, Shawn
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The purpose of this project is to: 1) coordinate monitoring and research efforts in the watershed between the community, government, and universities; 2) understand current aquatic health of the watershed using water quality, macroinvertebrates, aquatic furbearers and fish as indicators of ecosystem health; 3) understand historical environmental change and contaminant loading in the watershe...


Fish Habitat Survey and Bathymetry Survey for the South Parsons Lake Gas Supply Project, NWT
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: A Fish Habitat Survey and Bathymetry Survey are required for the proposed South Parsons Lake Gas Supply Project. The objective of the surveys is to gather baseline data regarding watercourse crossings and lakes in support of documents submitted for regulatory approval, to fulfill Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) requirements and to meet Transport Canada’s review of navigable waters. IMG-Golde...


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 ...


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. For the Vittrekwa River the research team plans to construct a fixed weir which will trap se...
