Two projects will be conducted on Great Bear Lake. The first is a continuation of the lake-wide assessment of the stock structure, population characteristics and movements of lake trout involving the collection of up-to-date data from Dease, Smith, McTavish and McVicar Arms (last assessed in the early 1980’s). Smith Arm (66° 20’ N, 123° 16’ W, 280 km from Deline) will be studied in 2006. Data has ...

This study involves the determination of the population structure of fish in the Mackenzie River. Specific objectives include the delineation of stocks of three fish species: loche (Lota lota), crookedback (Coregonus clupeaformis) and coney (Stenodus leucicthys), and the identification of downstream fisheries as mixed-stock or single-stock fisheries. A population genetics approach will be employed...

The researchers would like to collect stickleback fish in Fox Holes Lakes. These fish will be used for laboratory crosses to determine which genes control the number, shapes, and sizes of bones in the skeleton.
The research team will consist of Dr. Michael Shapiro and one other member of the Research Team. They will access Fox Holes Lake by car, since a road provides direct access to the lakesh...

Our research will involve the survey of zooplankton communities in lakes and ponds of the Mackenzie Delta area (Inuvialuit private lands). Samples will be collected by either wading in ponds or by towing at net behind a float equipped helicopter. Samples will be frozen in liquid nitrogen, and subsequently examined for genetic variation. Our work aims to establish the species diversity of zoopla...
Principal Investigator:Tremblay-Reinhardt, Nicolas-O. Licenced Year(s):
The researchers will collect samples of each plant species (Dryas integrifolia and Erinophorum angustifolium) communities. Non-destructive seeds and leaf samples will be randomly taken from 30 individual plants within sample patches over a one day period in each of the communities. No camp sites or use of vehicles such as ATV's will be utilized....
