Objective(s): The objective of this project is to determine if Pelzer Pond, at the Ekati Diamond Mine site, is a fish bearing water body. Previous fishing efforts conducted as part of a baseline study in 1999 indicated that there were no fish in the pond. The research team will verify these results. Should any fish be caught, the project will be terminated. Based on current development plans, Pelzer Pond will be buried by a waste rock pile.
