2005 Winter and Spring Aquatic Studies in the Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The researchers did a number of baseline studies during 2001 through 2004 as part of the Mackenzie Gas Project. These studies are continuing in 2005. Local knowledge and technical/scientific research is being used to design plans, assess impacts, and develop environmental protection plans. The aquatics field crews will consist of two Mackenzie Project Environment Group researchers and a local as...


Biological Characteristics and Movements of Fish in Travaillant Lake
Principal Investigator: Harris, Les
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The objective of the study is to track and document the movements of broad whitefish using radio telemetry, and to identify critically important areas over the next two years. This study will be the first of its kind to track and document the movements o...

Tuktoyaktuk Lake and Fish Habitat Survey
Principal Investigator: Jalkotzy, Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2001 2000
Summary: The research team will conduct a lake and fish habitat survey, to identify which water bodies have the following characteristics: overwintering fish, lake depths greater than 3.5 feet and water quality conditions which are not suitable for overwintering fish. The research team will consist of 3 crews, 4 men/crew. Crews will receive their safety and sampling orientation in Tuktoyaktuk Harbour at ...


Water Quality in the Richardson Mountain catchments
Principal Investigator: CLARK, Ian D.
Licenced Year(s): 1997
Summary: The objectives of this research are to study the chemistry of the groundwaters that flow into the Little Fish River near the Cache Creek overwintering hole. The role of carbonate rocks is important as there is a lot of subsurface flow in this rock type. The presence of the aufeis (winter icing) on Cache Creek is a sign of groundwater flow, and is one of the reasons that this site was chosen. We...


Rat River / Fish Creek Fish Hole Spring Reconnaissance
Principal Investigator: Ferguson, Brian
Licenced Year(s): 1996
Summary: Study will examine the location and extent of suitable overwintering habitat for charr in Rat River. Another objective is to document the location of spring upwellings at the overwintering site on Fish Creek. Knowledge of winter flow and temperature regimes of the spring and the effect of air temperature on the availability of overwintering habitat will provide managers with some ability to pred...


Radio tagging of broad whitefish (Coregonus nasus) on the Arctic Red River
Principal Investigator: Chang-Kue, Ken T.J.
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: The field work of this project will involve attaching radio tags or transmitters on 20 broad whitefish at a location approximately 40 km from the mouth of the Arctic Red River. The movements of these whitefish from September to the following June can then be monitored to determine their migration routes, spawning areas and overwintering areas. Data from the radio transmitters is collected by a s...


Migration, Ecophysiology and Energetics of Shorebirds at Alert, Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Morrison, R.I.G.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991 1990
Summary: Work by Dr. Morrison at Alert in the mid 1970's established the Knots and Turnstones breeding on northern Ellesmere Island migrate to wintering grounds on the European seaboard. Most migrate via staging areas in Iceland, though some of the population reaches Ellesmere via Norway. The internationally coordinated research program carried out over the last six years to study the migration, ecophysiol...
