Darnley Bay Seal Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Insley, Stephen J
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The goal of this project is to design and maintain a long-term, locally-based, monitoring program focused on ringed seals (Pusa hispida) and bearded seals (Erignathus barbatus) in the Darnley Bay, Sachs Harbour and Ulukhaktok areas of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, NT. To accomplish the objectives, the research team have designed a program to work with the local communities of Paulatuk, Sac...

Beluga health and food borne parasites in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Jenkins, Emily J
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to assess the overall health of beluga in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR), and compare to southern populations; to determine which animals, and which tissues, harbour parasites transmissible to people through food-borne routes; and, to assess and communicate risks in a culturally appropriate and timely manner to local residents, harvesters, territ...

Acoustic Monitoring of Marine Mammals and Ship Traffic in the Amundsen Gulf
Principal Investigator: Insley, Stephen J
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The main objective of the current study is to assess the impacts of increased shipping and sea-ice loss on marine mammals in the eastern Beaufort Sea. The primary methodology is passive acoustic monitoring at the western entrance to the Northwest Passage shipping route, particularly the Amundsen Gulf and Banks Island area. To accomplish the objectives, the research team have designed a program ...

Community-Based Passive Acoustic Monitoring of Marine Mammals near Paulatuk, NT
Principal Investigator: Ruben, Diane
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The expression of interest from the community of Paulatuk combined with the concurrent Marine Protected Area (MPA) process created an opportune circumstance for the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, Community Based Monitoring Program to advance a project in partnership with the Paulatuk Hunters and Trappers Committee (PHTC) that supported community needs, forwarded beluga science, contributed to prote...

Addendum to ArcticNet licence # 15213
Principal Investigator: Levesque, Keith R
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The ArcticNet marine-based research program is carried out from the Canadian research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen. The multi-year sampling program is developed around 3 main research components: 1) a meteorology, ocean & sea ice component; 2) a marine resources and environment component; and 3) a geology/bathymetry component. 1) Meteorology, ocean & sea ice component The general objective of thi...

Beluga Lung and Ear Health
Principal Investigator: Morell Ybarz, Maria
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: The overall goal of our project is to study indicators of beluga health, which will lead to increased knowledge about normal function and how disease and human activities may impact belugas in the Western Arctic. There are two aspects of this project which focus on respiratory and acoustic disease respectively. Beta defensins from beluga will be characterized and their expression in response to po...

Assessment of the Western Arctic Boundary Current
Principal Investigator: Pickart, Robert S.
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The main objective is to characterize the western Arctic Boundary current (which flows at the edge of the shelf), in order to understand its role in dictating shelf-basin exchange of water and materials and how it impacts the ecosystem of the region, including the occurrence of marine mammals. This project is a collaboration between US and Canadian scientists. The research team are using a comb...

Principal Investigator: Evans, Kevin
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: Five species of marine mammal regularly occur in the vicinity of the Devon exploration leases in the southern Beaufort Sea. These include beluga whale, bowhead whale, ringed seal, bearded seal, and polar bear. Other species such as narwhal, walrus and gr...

Human and chemical ecology of arctic pathways taken by marine pollutants
Principal Investigator: Kassam, Karim-Aly S.
Licenced Year(s): 1999
Summary: Research will begin with the development of a database of existing information concerning impact of pollutants on the human ecology. An interview protocol will be developed for collecting indigenous knowledge on the impact of chemical pollutants. By training two researchers in each community surveyed, local indigenous knowledge will be collected through participation by community based staff. All ...
