Con Mine 2019 Supplemental Benthic Invertebrate Sampling Study
Principal Investigator: Irving, Elaine
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4574. The objective is to sample benthic invertebrates in Jackfish Bay (exposure area) and Kam Bay (reference area), to confirm benthic results from 2018 and determine if treated Con Mine effluent is affecting the benthic community in Jackfish Bay. Benthic invertebrate samples will be collected at five stations in each ...


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...

Ekati Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Pacholski, Laura J
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2019 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 2.5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week of sprin...


Enbridge KP 158 Little Smith Creek
Principal Investigator: DeMontigny, Dallas
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of the survey is to identify potential sensitivities in the area and help develop avoidance or mitigation measures. This will be done through a ground reconnaissance survey. The surveys include preliminary archaeological, wildlife, vegetation, and fish habitat. The surveys will be conducted by foot patrol and shovel test pits if required. Local people will assist in the surveys. ...


2018 Fisheries and Hydrotechnical Assessments
Principal Investigator: Chiperzak, Doug
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of the fisheries and hydrotechnical assessments is to collect the necessary data to inform the design of new crossing structures to be built. At each crossing location, fish Habitat will be assessed (Gunghi Creek, Hwy 8 km 266.1, and Hwy 8 km 147.0; Oscar Creek and Great Bear River; and, Frank Channel and Behchoko Access Road). Fish habitat will be assessed by using cross-channel...


Imaryuk Monitor Pilot Program
Principal Investigator: Sparling, Paul D
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The purpose of the study is to create a data base that will allow for informed decisions to direct the appropriate environmental responses to road issues and community fish management and harvest issues. This program will also provide a knowledge base to the Inuvialuit that will allow for the wise and sustainable long term management of fish resources in the study area. This program will involv...
