Principal Investigator:Hoos, Rick Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this research are:
(1) to determine length, weight, and general condition of 100 fish and tissue analysis of not more than 10 fish (Slimy Sculpin- Cottus cognatus) per site at five site locations in the Flat River: two locations upstream of the CanTung mine site, one adjacent to the mine site and at two locations downstream of the mine site; and, (2) to determine sediment and w...
Principal Investigator:Jalkotzy, Peter Licenced Year(s):
Selection of lakes for this program was based on: size (diameter/depth); fish over-wintering potential; connectivity with other waterbodies; and the likelihood of intensive (3D) seismic activity occurring within the lakes during the winter of 2001-02. A total of 6 lakes have been identified for inclusion in the survey. Three alternate lakes have also been identified in the event that those selec...
Principal Investigator:Somji, Feisal Licenced Year(s):
The researcher will conduct an intensive gillnetting program using multi-mesh gillnet gangs to determine the size and characteristics of fish populaitons in the project area. Both floating and bottom sets will be used, perpendicular and parallel to the shoreline. It is proposed that 40 fish of each species found will be taken from each lake sampled....
Principal Investigator:Cosens, Sue Licenced Year(s):
The researcher will make daily flights from Igloolik to look for bowheads. The researcher will estimate the relative abundance, assess stock status and describe the spring distribution and movements of the bowheads in Foxe Basin. The researcher will also locate a study site where a hydrophone array could be set up to count migrating bowheads in future years....
Principal Investigator:Couture, Richard Licenced Year(s):
Rescan Environmental Services Ltd. will continue their study on the types of fish and other aquatic organisms found in the Thonokeid Lake area. Data on species type as well as their age, abundance and habitat will be collected. In addition, muscle and liver tissue of fish will be collected in order to assess for the presence of heavy metal contaminants. This study will be summarized in an envir...
Principal Investigator:Stewart, D. Bruce Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Green, John M. Licenced Year(s):
As part of a long-term study, I will continue to make underwater observations of the benthic fishes found in the shallow waters of Resolute Bay. Some fish will be collected for further laboratory studies in order to examine their food habits, growth rates and population growth rates. The species Gymnelus viridis will be studied in greater detail....
Principal Investigator:Krebs, Charles Licenced Year(s):
The researchers will examine the cycles in lemming abundance (i.e., increases and decreases in the lemming population) for the western arctic region. Ongoing research suggests that lemmings in the Pearce Point area do not appear to reach very high numbers as has been noted in the eastern arctic and Scandinavia. Licence issued for use of Inuvik Research Centre....
Principal Investigator:Harwood, Lois Licenced Year(s):
HTC members have counted, measured and sampled all fish that were caught in the domestic fishery located at the mouth of the Hornaday River for the past several years. This season represents the fourth year of the monitoring program. HTC members will collect information on arctic charr that are caught by the fishery....
Principal Investigator:Hines, Jim Licenced Year(s):
Data on the distribution, abundance, survival/mortality, and productivity are essential for the sound management of wildlife populations but there is a critical lack of such information for white-fronted geese, Canada geese, Pacific brant and tundra swan populations from the Inuvialuit Settlement Region. Helicopter surveys, ground counts and banding/neck collaring will help to determine distribut...
