Principal Investigator:Low, George Licenced Year(s):
The primary objective of this project is to enhance Providence Creek to increase arctic grayling (Thymallus arcticus) spawning habitat. This will be done by removing beaver dams which have been shown to decrease usable spawning habitat, and to create new spawning habitat with gravel and boulders.
Another objective of the project is to monitor the arctic grayling population to determine if the ...

The objective is to describe the terrestrial and aquatic environment in the Yellowknife River between Prosperous Lake and Bluefish Lake. This may include investigating vegetation, water quality, benthic invertebrate populations, and fish. The results will be used to determine the most suitable means of fish habitat compensation, to guide mitigation during construction of the new dam for Bluefish H...

The objectives of this research project are:
1) to re-assess the anadromous component of the known Vittrekwa River Dolly Varden char population;
2) to investigate & assess other potential suitable Dolly Varden habitat; and
3) to confirm the presence of Dolly Varden char in the Stony Creek watershed.
For the Vittrekwa River the research team plans to construct a fixed weir which will trap se...

The main objective of the program is to collect fisheries and environmental baseline information to better understand the environmental characteristics of the Great Bear River and to support potential future development of hydropower on the Great Bear River. The program is not being conducted to support a specific project as there are no hydropower projects planned for the Great Bear River at thi...
Principal Investigator:Azzolini, Louie Licenced Year(s):2009
The objective of the first portion of the research is to identify, measure, and characterize lake trout and northern pike spawning habitat in Nonacho Lake and to confirm the presence of lake trout and northern pike juveniles and adults in potential spawning areas. Bathymetric surveys will be conducted at these sites in order to determine the areal extent of habitat loss, and the quality of habit...
Principal Investigator:Nielsen, Jennifer L. Licenced Year(s):2008
This study aims to use genetic markers and otolith microchemistry to determine if differences exist between putative Arctic cisco spawning aggregations in tributaries of the Mackenzie River (Peel and Arctic Red rivers); and, if differences do exist, to use this information to identify population-of-origin for fish caught in the Colville River subsistence fishery.
During the summer or fall (1 Au...
Principal Investigator:Mitchell, Bill Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this study are to:
- Determine the number of adult Arctic grayling, suckers, and northern pike spawning in Baker Creek;
- Describe spawning habitat throughout Baker Creek;
- Provide evidence of successful spawning by observing and capturing recently emerged YOY (young-of-year);
- Observe and describe habitat use by YOY while in Baker Creek prior to outbound migration;
Principal Investigator:Tallman, Ross F Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Millar, Nathan P Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Dahl-Fequet, Monica L Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this project is to collect biological and hydrological information on Hill Creek. It is unknown as to whether or not the culvert at the Hill Creek highway crossing is large enough to allow for the spring migration of spawning fish. The researchers will collect fisheries and habitat information on Hill Creek. This data will include fish presence/absence, lifestage and species com...
