Monitoring ringed seals in domestic harvests at Sachs Harbour, Paulatuk and Holman, NWT, in 1993
Principal Investigator: Harwood, Lois
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: Members of each of the communities will be hired to sample and measure the ringed seals taken in the spring and summer harvests. These monitors will be trained prior to the field season in order to collect data on the size and location of the harvests, as well as measurements on the seals harvested including sexual maturity, health, and condition. Samples of tissue taken will include jaws, lungs...


Biology of ringed seals and the impact of ice-breaking traffic on ringed seal biology and behaviour
Principal Investigator: Innes, Stuart
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: This project is a continuation of the NOGAP B.1 Marine Mammal Vessel Interaction Project. It studies the effects of ship traffic on the behaviour of ringed seals during the fast-ice period and the habitat selection of ringed seals. Seals will be located and live- trapped in order that they can be tagged and monitored. Changes in seal behaviour and distribution will be examined before, during an...


Organic Contaminants in the Arctic Ecosystem: Utilizing the Ringed Seal (Phoca hispida) as a Biomonitor
Principal Investigator: Metcalfe, C.D.
Licenced Year(s): 1991
Summary: The Research will examine the variation of organochlorine contaminants (O.C.'s) in the arctic ringed seal species. Major trends in concentrations will be outlined on 4 distinct levels: 1) variation within individual seals 2) seasonal variation in one seal popultion 3) variation between seal popultaions from two distinct sites 4) long-term temporal variations at these two locations....


Ringed Seal Biology
Principal Investigator: Stewart, Robert E.A.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1990
Summary: This study involves the weighing, measuring and sampling of ringed seals which are harvested during normal hunting activities around Pangnirtung. Sampling includes the collection of various tissues and organs. This information will be used to estimate how quickly the ringed seal population replaces harvested animals....
