Objective(s): to sample Arctic Cisco with nets along the Beaufort Sea coastline; to collect fish through purchase and/or netting in the Mackenzie River (Arctic Red, Peel, Liard, Great Bear, Loon, Mountain River junctions) for later laboratory analysis; and, to tag Arctic Cisco

Project Description: William Griffiths and his team will be using nets to sample and tag Arctic Cisco along the Beaufort Sea coastline. A $5.00 reward is offered for each fish tag returned. They are also collecting fish in the Mackenzie River at the junctions of the Liard, Great Bear, Loon, Mountain, Peel, and Arctic Red rivers. They will either net or purchase the fish to determine whether the fish belong to the same or different populations.
