Defining the biothermal envelope of Dolly Varden in the Canadian Western Arctic to inform conservation planning.
Principal Investigator: Mochnacz, Neil
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The first phase of this field program was implemented in 2018, where approximately twenty loggers were deployed and retrieved. A minimum sample size of seventy is required to build a robust stream temperature model. The research team propose to deploy July 14-15 and retrieve August 29-30 the remaining temperature loggers (n = 50) across the Fish Creek watershed. This data will be used to develop a...


Edzo Water Intake - Aquatic Assessment
Principal Investigator: Lavictoire, Michelle L
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: To gather site specific information and habitat description at and near the existing water intake in order to complete an impact assessment for proposed in-water works (described in the rationale) Site investigations would include habitat mapping and fish community sampling. The research team are assuming the fish community information will be required as it is understood at this time that no s...


EKATI Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Lee, Claudine
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2014 to 2018 will be (1) to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality; and (2) to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future. In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week o...


EKATI Aquatic Monitoring Program, 2009-2013
Principal Investigator: Robb, Tonia L
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2009 to 2013 will be to determine if the EKATI mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future. In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week of spring freshet, ...


NTPC Bluefish Hydro Repairs
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective is to describe the terrestrial and aquatic environment in the Yellowknife River between Prosperous Lake and Bluefish Lake. This may include investigating vegetation, water quality, benthic invertebrate populations, and fish. The results will be used to determine the most suitable means of fish habitat compensation, to guide mitigation during construction of the new dam for Bluefish H...


A phylogenetic and phylogeographic study of predaceous diving beetles in the Nearctic with a focus on the tribe Agabini (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae, Colymbetinae).
Principal Investigator: Venables, Chandra
Licensed Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1) establish evolutionary relationships of diving beetles in the Nearctic, in addition to identifying colonization routes for exemplars in the tribe Agabini; 2) assess genetic diversity of target species and among-population genetic mixing, and compare these data to historical data (where possible) with an aim at assessing latitudinal and historica...


2008-2010 Baseline Studies for Avalon Ventures Ltd. Proposed Thor Lake Rare Earth Metals Project - Aquatics Component
Principal Investigator: Lawson, Nick
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008
Summary: The objectives of this project are to characterize the baseline water and sediment quality within the Thor Lake area, and to characterize the baseline aquatic community through the collection of phytoplankton, zooplankton and benthic invertebrates. Water, sediment and aquatic organisms will be collected from 20 stations within the Thor Lake area. Most stations will be accessed by ATV and/or bo...


Canadian Zinc Corporation – Habitat Compensation Investigation
Principal Investigator: Hamilton, David
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: Several stream crossings along the #1 and #7 highways are expected to be suitable candidates for habitat compensation. Aquatic habitat assessments and fish collections at selected stream crossings need to be conducted to confirm fish species presence or absence upstream and downstream of the crossings, to assess habitat conditions and to evaluate fish passage to assist in the development of a fis...


Selwyn Project Fisheries Baseline Study
Principal Investigator: Essar, Natasha
Licensed Year(s): 2008
Summary: The objective of this study is to determine fish presence, distribution and abundance in water bodies in the Project area. The age/size frequency distribution, wintering habitat and spawning habitat will be examined, and the metal burdens determined, along with fish presence and distribution along road and bridge crossings. The study will use a combination of methods including minnow traps, fyk...


Shortjaw Cisco survey in Yellowknife Bay
Principal Investigator: Vecsei, Paul
Licensed Year(s): 2008
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research licence application # 775. The objective of this study is to understand the diversity and dynamics of shortjaw and blackfin ciscoes in Yellowknife Bay (species diversity, distribution, habitat requirements, growth and reproduction) and establishing long term monitoring, while contributing to community outreach and education. Fifty cisc...
