Further Examination of the Bio- Magnification of Mercury within Fish Species and watersheds of the Deh Cho and Their Varying Levels Among Lakes
Principal Investigator: Low, Mike
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4590. The objectives of this research project are: 1) to determine why fish mercury levels vary among lakes in the Dehcho region; 2) to identify best predictors of fish mercury levels; 3) to determine with fish have the lowest levels of mercury and the highest levels of nutrients; and, 4) to collect data on parameters that ...


Sanguez Lake Fish Down Study
Principal Investigator: Low, George
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4573. The objectives of this study are to: 1) establish a population estimate of walleye in Sanguez Lake; 2) establish an additional estimate of fish mercury concentrations in walleye and pike. In 2013, mean mercury concentration in walleye was 0.71 mg/kg wet weight, and in pike was 1.09 mg/kg wet weight; 3) reduce the n...


Contaminant Biomonitoring in the Northwest Territories Mackenzie Valley: Investigating the Links Between Contaminant Exposure, Nutritional Status, and Country Food Use
Principal Investigator: Laird, Brian D
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2016
Summary: The overall objective of this research is to promote country foods in the Dehcho Region in a way that balances contaminant risks and nutrient benefits in order to maximize nutrient status while minimizing mercury exposure. The research team will work towards this objective through the implementation of research that will consist of the biomonitoring study to evaluate country food usage patterns, c...

Investigation of factors affecting high mercury levels in fish in lakes in the Mackenzie River Basin (2002-2003)
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licensed Year(s): 2003 1998
Summary: This study is based on earlier research conducted by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans which found that fish in many lakes in the Mackenzie River Basin had high mercury concentrations. This study examines the environment in which the fish live in o...


Inuvik Regional Human Contaminants Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: MacNeil, Chuck
Licensed Year(s): 2000 1999 1998
Summary: This study will serve to establish the types & levels of organochlorines and heavy metals in maternal and cord blood samples, and the level of mercury in hair samples from participants in the area served by the Inuvik Regional & Social Services Board. Sampling protocol has been outlined technical specialists in the field of organochlorine in blood and mercury in hair. Participating mothers deliver...
