The researchers hope to collect lake trout from Great Slave Lake (Lutsel K'e and Hay River) and Lac Ste. Therese, and burbot from Great Slave Lake (Fort Resolution). In addition, they hope to collect northern pike (and possibly walleye) from Lac Ste. Therese and Birch L...


Licence #2518
Principal Investigator: Biggs, Homer
Licenced Year(s): 1979
Summary: To collect hair, blood and urine samples to determine the disease resistence and state of health of native people on traditional diets and those who consume large quantities of "junk" food. A comparison will be made with a control group of people from Cleveland. Lead and mercury determinations along with other heavy metals will also be undertaken on the hair and urine samples....
