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...

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...
