Characterization of the reference condition of northern biota and assessment of potential changes due to mining
Principal Investigator: Dube, Monique G
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The objectives of this research are three-fold: 1) to determine the natural variability of benthic invertebrate and fish communities at sites free of human impact; 2) to determine any changes in these due to mining activity relevant to regional variability; and 3) to establish dose response relationships and critical thresholds for stressors including mine effluent, ammonia, a hydrocarbon indicato...


Community Monitoring of the Big Fish River
Principal Investigator: Hoyt, Andrea J.
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: Community Monitoring of the Big Fish River is a new project being led by the Fisheries Joint Management Committee and the West Side Working Group. The project at the Big Fish River will include habitat and water quality surveys, traditional knowledge research and integration, discussions of the implications of changing environmental conditions, and Inuvialuit health and culture, including diet an...


2002 Panda Diversion Channel Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Moore, Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998
Summary: This project is to meet the requirements of the Fish Habitat Compensation Agreement between BHP and DFO. The purpose of the project is to monitor the effectiveness of created fish habitat within the Panda Diversion Channgel. Assessments will include an e...


New ischnacanthid acanthodians from the Lower Devonian of the Mackenzie Mountains, NT, Canada
Principal Investigator: Hermus, Chelsea
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: The main objective of the project is to collect fossils of two specific groups of early fishes (acanthodians and heterostracans) to supplement specimens already collected for research projects at the University of Alberta. The field party plans to journe...


Insect Biodiversity and Biogeography along the Thelon River, NWT
Principal Investigator: Currie, Douglas C.
Licenced Year(s): 2002 2000
Summary: The primary focus of the study is the numbers and kinds of insects that live in the Thelon River at its valley. A previous study in 2000 on the Horton River revealed a number of species that are not represented in Alaska and the Yukon. Collections from t...


Chemical Investigation of Marine Invertebrates from Husky Lakes
Principal Investigator: Carolsfeld, Joachim
Licenced Year(s): 1996
Summary: The researchers propose to collect invertebrates, algae and microorganisms with the use of SCUBA, plankton nets, bottom dredges, and intertidal collection. These samples will be sorted and frozen for later analysis in Halifax. The researchers wish to collect samples in about 25 sites, ranging from the southern tip of Liverpool Bay to south of Saunatuk. All collections will take place from small...


Persistent organic contaminants in the Great Slave Lake ecosystem.
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1994
Summary: The researchers will collect samples of sediments from the bottom of Great Slave Lake at sites near Fort Resolution and Lutsel K'e. This data will allow a better understanding of how fast sediments are deposited on the lake bottom in various regions. Researchers will also collect invertebrates and fish samples as part of an overall study of contaminants in the lake's ecosystem....


The Effects of UV-B Radiation On the Community of Arctic Lakes
Principal Investigator: Perin, Sofia
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: This study will be done by setting up 6 enclosures in a lake or pond. Two enclosures will be exposed to reduced UV-B levels, two other enclosures will be exposed to ambient UV-B levels, and finally two other enclosures will be exposed to enhanced UV-B levels. Regular measurements will be made of algae and invertebrates biomass, species composition, and pigment; and of algal photosynthesis and end ...


Metabolism of Arctic Organisms
Principal Investigator: Ballantyne, J.S.
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: The research will determine the kinds of fats of Arctic fish and invertebrates found in various parts of the body (blood, liver, kidney, muscle, brain) and how they change when the fish move from freshwater into seawater or when the temperature changes. The studies will determine how Arctic animals are different from similar animals found in warmer climates and how Arctic animals are adapted to Ar...


Tokyo Sea Life Park Collection, 1992
Principal Investigator: Nakayama, Tsunesuke
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991
Summary: The researcher and his team will collect arctic marine life such as fishes, invertebrates and sea algaes in order to contribute to the conservation of marine environments, and deepen understanding of arctic marine life. Tokyo Sea Life Park has started research on breeding behavior and early life history of arctic marine animals, as well as exhibits in the Tokyo Sea Life Park of arctic marine anim...
