Principal Investigator:Stewart, Robert E.A. Licenced Year(s):
The researchers will be attaching satellite transmitters to the tusks and tags to the flippers of walrus in order to study walrus behaviour and movements. In addition, body measurements and blood samples will be taken from all walrus that are handled in order that more information is known about the individuals being tagged. These activities will occur outside the normal Resolute Bay hunting ran...
Principal Investigator:Stephenson, Tasha Licenced Year(s):
This project will involve the collection of data on the harvest of walrus in the Foxe Basin area. Measurements will be taken on the walrus harvested and tissue samples will be collected for the purpose of assessing contaminant levels in tissues. Hunters from Igloolik and Hall Beach will be trained in sampling techniques and the local Hunters' and Trappers' Associations will be contracted to carr...
Principal Investigator:Richard, Pierre Licenced Year(s):
The researcher and team will continue their study to census walrus in the area of northern Hudson Bay and beluga in the area of southeast Baffin Island. Using remote sensing tools and twin otter aircraft they will census portions of the range of walrus and beluga to determine their distribution and abundance....

Dr. Welch and his project personnel will continue work on a study which began in 1984. The objective of the study continues to be the quantification of food web leading to marine mammal and bird production in the Canadian Marine Arctic....
Principal Investigator:Miller, E.H. Licenced Year(s):
1) To undertake a study on the distribution, numbers, movements, feeding grounds, and reproductive characteristics of Atlantic walrus. 2) To describe herd composition, formation, and issolation including measurements of time ashore between feeding trips, duration of feeding trips, movements of individuals within herds and the effects of weather on individual and group behaviour....
Principal Investigator:Conover, S.A.M. Licenced Year(s):
(1) Aerial surveys on murre and beluga whale movement - eastern Hudson Strait and southeast Davis Strait. (2) Bird and mammal observations to determine species and abundance - to be conducted on the ESSO Sedco 709 rig and the Aquitaine rig located in southeast Davis Strait. (3) Technical assistance will be offered to a local group of people in Frobisher Bay undertaking a seal and walrus s...
