Population abundance and vital rates of fish harvested from lakes along the Mackenzie Valley pipeline route: Yeltea Lake 2006
Principal Investigator: Tallman, Ross F
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: This study involves the assessment of valued fishes in lakes along the proposed Mackenzie Pipeline route. There is little information on fish populations in any of the smaller inland lakes of the region. Through community consultation in Fort Good Hope it was determined that Yeltea Lake should be studied. Yeltea Lake is utilized by residents for sustenance (containing lake trout, broad whitefish, ...


Trudel Creek: Aquatics Assessment for Minimum Flow Threshold
Principal Investigator: Uren, Shane
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The field survey of the fish habitat and community of Trudel Creek and a section of the Taltson River will likely take place during one trip in August, although there is the possibility of a second trip to collect additional information. The field team will fly into Fort Smith and then be transported to the Twin Gorges Camp either by plane or helicopter. Rescan will use a local helicopter company ...


Modeling of migratory patterns to spawning and over-wintering areas of harvested fish species in rivers along the Mackenzie Valley pipeline route
Principal Investigator: Tallman, Ross F
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The goal of this study is to gather information about fish and fish habitat to minimize and monitor impacts associated with the proposed Mackenzie Gas Pipeline. Broad whitefish, inconnu, arctic cisco and lake whitefish are the major fish species taken in subsistence fisheries in the Mackenzie Valley. These species are highly migratory and are targeted by multiple fisheries along their migration ro...


Assessment of lake trout stocks in Great Bear Lake
Principal Investigator: Howland, Kimberly
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005
Summary: 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 ...


Arctic Red River Fish Study
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: Currently, little information exists on the fisheries resources of the Arctic Red River. Baseline information on fisheries resources is required to make sound management decisions. This information (e.g., biological characteristics of fish: length, weight, age at maturity, migration patterns, date of spawning; presence/absence of species) is collected through long-term studies, traditional knowled...


Stock Delineation of Fish Species in the Mackenzie River
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: 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...


Sustainable Alternatives to Industrial Forestry in the Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Anderson, David G
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1998
Summary: The Gwich'in Renewable Resource Board (GRRB) is working with the Department of Resources, Wildlife and Economic Development (DRWED) and Gwich'in Tribal Council (GTC) to develop a forest management plan for the Gwich'in Settlement Area. In order to manage the forests sustainably, we must have a good understanding of how fast trees grow and how forests regenerate after disturbances (particularly wi...


Fisheries Research Projects in the Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Walker-Larsen, Jennifer
Licenced Year(s): 2002 2000
Summary: Peel River Fish Study: This study attempts to understand the timing of spawning migrations up the Peel River for coney, whitefish, crookedback and herring and to collect baseline information about these spawning populations. Local people with camps along the river are hired to catch and sample fish. The GRRB and DFO provide training, support and report the results of the work. Data collected is be...


Studies on the past, present and future ecological impact on Canadian northern boreal forest and arctic ecosystems due to mining activities, shown at the Great Slave Lake area, Northwest Territories, Canada
Principal Investigator: Steinecke, Karin
Licenced Year(s): 1998 1997
Summary: The project will focus on understanding, analyzing and evaluating the reactions of the northern boreal forest ecosystems in the Great Slave Lake region due to man made stress of mining, settlement and connecting activities. The project will try to develop some general conclusions, statements and model systems. The research team (2 persons) will come from Europe to Yellowknife by plane. The base wi...


Collection of Inuit traditional knowledge of the distribution and biology of High Arctic beluga and narwhal
Principal Investigator: Stewart, D. Bruce
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: The researchers will be documenting Inuit traditional knowledge of the distribution, abundance and biology of High Arctic beluga and narwhal. This information will be used to identify research and management needs for local and co-management plans. A questionnaire will be used to interview elders and hunters; the interviewer will be a community resident. Information will be compiled into a repo...
