Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The Travaillant Lake system is one of the most culturally and traditionally important areas within the Gwich'in Settlement Area (GSA). In recent years, in light of proposed industrial development and exploration that may threaten the aquatic environment within this system, Travaillant Lake has become a focus of fisheries-related studies that have attempted to collect information on biological char...

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, ...

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...

Summary: Peel River Fish Study - community monitors will be hired to catch and sample fish from their camps. These camps will be accessed by boat and helicopter. Monitors will catch fish with an experimental gillnet, measure fish, and remove aging structures. The...

Inconnu anchor tagging and radio tagging migratory study
Principal Investigator: Chiperzak, Doug
Licenced Year(s): 1996
Summary: A sample of potential spawners (inconnu) will be tagged (30 radio tags and up to 300 anchor tags) in the area of shingle point, Coney Lake and possible other areas in the outer delta. fish will be captured using a combination of gillnets, box traps, angling, and seining. Tracking of radio tagged inconnu will be done from a fixed wing aircraft. Recapture information from tagged fish captured in ...
