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 ...


Estimating Aquatic Species Physiological Limits (ASPL) through a Forage Fish Monitoring and Observation (FFMO) program in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR)
Principal Investigator: Steiner, Nadja
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4554. The 3 year project objective is to conduct underwater eco-physiological monitoring in remote Inuvialuit coastal areas in both summer and winter seasons. This will result in critical benchmark data with emphasis on coastal forage fish species during rapid climate change. Another project off-shoot will be a self-suffici...


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...


Spatial and long-term trends in persistent organic contaminants and metals in fish from the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4533. This study will investigate whether contaminant levels are changing in fish in Great Slave Lake which the research team have been studying since the early 1990s. The team plan to collect lake trout from the Hay River and Lutsel K’e areas. The team will also collect burbot from the Lutsel K’e and Fort Resolution areas ...


Community-based monitoring of whitefish in the lower Mackenzie River watershed
Principal Investigator: Hovel, Rachel A
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective of this project is to maintain a community-based monitoring program in the communities of Fort McPherson, Aklavik, and Tsiigehtchic. Data collected in this community-based monitoring program and other previous research has shown that ocean-migrating broad whitefish use the Peel River as spawning habitat, and that these fish also make extensive migrations between rivers in the lowe...


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...


Temporal trend studies of trace metals and halogenated organic contaminants (HOCs), including new and emerging persistent compounds, in Mackenzie River burbot, Fort Good Hope, NWT.
Principal Investigator: Stern, Gary
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The short-term goals are to determine if 2019 burbot contaminant concentrations: 1) remain below Health Canada guidelines (i.e. <0.5 ppm mercury per gram fish); 2) are associated with dietary indicators to determine the influence of diet (via stable isotope ratios) on contaminant concentrations in current fish, although previous results suggested no association; and, 3) as well as to look for link...


Giant Mine Yellowknife Bay Environmental Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Machtans, Hilary
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The main objective of the study is to implement a one-year environmental monitoring program to support a 2019 water licence application as well as associated regulatory requirements. Three studies will be done in 2019: a) Phase 6 Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM) program; b) Fish tissue; and, c) Fish presence/absence, habitat survey and benthos sampling. The Ninespine Stickleback su...


How will fish communities in Gwich’in and Inuvialuit lakes respond to climate change?
Principal Investigator: Gray, Derek K
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: The purpose of this project is to obtain baseline data for fish communities in Gwich’in Settlement Area (GSA) and Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR) lakes and use these data to predict future changes in fish communities caused by climate change. Specific objectives are: 1) to develop a baseline data set for fish populations, fish habitat, water quality, and water temperature for small and m...


De Beers Canada Snap Lake Mine Environmental Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Hood, Alexandra E
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2002 2001 2000 1999
Summary: This research is intended to meet regulatory requirements from the Snap Lake Environmental Assessment and under the mine's Water License, Land Use permit and Environmental Agreement. The objectives of this research project are to obtain and determine annual variability of the relative abundance, distribution, group composition and behaviour of caribou; the relative activity of grizzly bears; t...
