Continued Population Assessment of Harvested Fish Species in the Travaillant Lake System, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Howard, Kimberly
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: The main objectives of this study are to determine baseline population status and develop reliable indicators of population abundance and mortality rates of key harvested fish species (lake whitefish and broad whitefish) in the Travaillant Lake system and to identify and determine the relative abundance and species composition of other species within the lake system. Field crews will be transp...


Seasonal movements of lake trout, lake whitefish and northern pike in a small northern Shield lake.
Principal Investigator: Dick, Terry A.
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The objective of this research is to study what lake trout, whitefish and pike eat and their movements in a small northern Shield lake (Chitty Lake). Transportation of personnel and equipment into and out of Chitty Lake will be by single engine float plane (Air Tindi). During this study, the researchers will use standardized gill nets, a backpack electroshocker, a seine net, VEMCO acoustic tra...


Ecological Conditions in the Proposed Discharge Route of the Colomac Mine, NT
Principal Investigator: McGurk, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The researchers will measure water quality, aquatic ecology and the status of fish populations in ponds and lakes along the proposed discharge route of mine water from the Colomac Mine (North Pond, L-Shaped Lake, Paddle Lake, Lake 315, and Lower Lake) and compare those data with data collected from reference lakes (Steeves Lake, Baton Lake, and Spanner Lake). Work will include taking three samples...


Continued Radio-Tracking of Broad Whitefish (Coregonus nasus) in the Travaillant Lake System, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Harris, Les
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: In this study, researchers will use helicopters and radio telemetry to identify the seasonal movement patterns of Travaillant Lake broad whitefish, and their use of specific habitats and critically important areas such as those used for spawning, rearing and overwintering. For the management of fish and fisheries in the face of industrial development and exploration, it is essential to collect suc...


Phylogeography and Genetic Population Structure of Broad Whitefish (Coregonus nasus) in the Mackenzie Delta and River and Surrounding Area, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Harris, Les
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: The objective of this study is to establish a baseline collection of tissue and fin samples from broad whitefish that will eventually be used for phylogeographic analysis and the classification of their genetic population structure. Local Gwich’in and Inuvialuit fishermen will be asked, on a volunteer-only basis, to collect fins or tissue samples from broad whitefish caught during the subsisten...


The Broad Whitefish Traditional Ecological Knowledge Study.
Principal Investigator: Freeman, Milton M.R.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The research team will carry out interviews with the Inuvialuit that are knowledgable about broad whitefish and its fishery in the local waters. Data to be obtained include information on the traditional fishery, changes to this fishery, knowledge about the breeding and feeding habits, migrations, parasites and diseases, and effects of the local environmental changes on whitefish....


Broad whitefish population study and traditional knowledge
Principal Investigator: Tallman, Ross F
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: The researchers will work with other scientists to examine the broad whitefish of the Mackenzie River and associated tributaries of the Arctic Red and Peel Rivers. Features such as population size, migration, growth, age of sexual maturity and mortality will be examined. A study of the traditional knowledge of broad whitefish and fishing in the Mackenzie River will also be developed. Training i...


Broad whitefish tagging project
Principal Investigator: Babaluk, John
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: The researchers will tag broad whitefish in the Mackenzie River Delta in the vicinity of Horseshoe Bend. During this season, fish are moving to areas further upstream. Tagging will provide information about the movements, growth, survival and numbers of whitefish and will contribute to their management. Local residents will take part in a training program on the methods of tagging fish....


Contaminant analyses for wildlife food sources in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Bell, Bob
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: This project was initiated following the concern voiced by the six ISR communities about the presence and levels of contaminants in the major country food sources. Samples of body tissues will be taken from charr, whitefish, seals and belugas in order to assess for heavy metal, organochlorine and PCB contaminants. These samples will be taken while other field research is being conducted by Fishe...


Radio tagging of broad whitefish (Coregonus nasus) on the Arctic Red River
Principal Investigator: Chang-Kue, Ken T.J.
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: The field work of this project will involve attaching radio tags or transmitters on 20 broad whitefish at a location approximately 40 km from the mouth of the Arctic Red River. The movements of these whitefish from September to the following June can then be monitored to determine their migration routes, spawning areas and overwintering areas. Data from the radio transmitters is collected by a s...
