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...


Alberta-Northwest Territories Transboundary Fish Monitoring Program: Slave River
Principal Investigator: Beveridge, Meghan
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4548. The objectives of the fish monitoring program are to: a) Repeat the contaminant and fish indicator sampling that occurred during historical (1990-1995 and 2011-2015) programs; b) Expand the species list to include fish sampled under the Oil Sands Monitoring, which would provide fish health indicators in the Athabasc...


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 ...


Jackfish Lake Environmental Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Machtans, Hilary
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The main objective of the Jackfish Lake Baseline Environmental Monitoring is to develop and implement a one-year environmental monitoring program to support a 2019 water licence application. Specific objectives are: 1) to determine the range of water temperatures from each of the three cooling systems; 2) to measure annual water temperature regime in Jackfish Lake and analyse any impacts of the ...


Tundra Mine Remediation Risk Assessment
Principal Investigator: Corrin, Natasha
Licensed Year(s): 2016
Summary: The overall objective of the Tundra Mine risk assessment is to facilitate project closure by determining if there are any residual risks to human health or ecological receptors, including aquatic life, associated with the proposed tailings remediation. If any risks remain, the goal is to provide recommendations for risk management. In support of the risk assessment, and in order to collect baselin...


Paulatuk Whitefish Assessment
Principal Investigator: Ruben, Diane
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objectives of the research are to conduct an assessment of whitefish diet and contaminants. Two technicians will collect approximately 60 samples over 7 days at Billy’s Creek in July 2016 and an additional 60 samples at the Hornaday River in August and October 2016. Data will be collected on: species, location, date/time, catch-effort/gear type, length, weight, sex, maturity, otolith, stom...


Metal levels in large-bodied fishes near communities along the Mackenzie River compared to impacted lakes near Yellowknife, NWT
Principal Investigator: Somers, Gila L
Licensed Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objectives of this project are to collect fish tissue samples from species of subsistence importance to (1) establish a long-term community monitoring program for contaminants in fish within the Gwich’in Settlement Area; and (2) to monitor potential spatial and temporal trends in metal concentrations (including mercury) in fish tissues within the Mackenzie River watershed and the Yellowknife r...


Examination of distribution and density of juvenile Dolly Varden char in Fish Creek (Rat River)
Principal Investigator: Maier, Kris
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The research team seek to build on the 2014 success in monitoring habitats and using electrofishing to assess juvenile Dolly Varden occupancy. Specific objectives include: 1) to continue implementing a community-based monitoring program to monitor essential habitats; 2) to further delineate the spatial distribution of juvenile char in the Fish Creek watershed; and, 3) to establish a length at age ...


Updating data on mercury levels in food fish species in lakes used by Deh Cho communities
Principal Investigator: Low, George
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2012 2011
Summary: The objectives of this project are: 1) To determine which lakes are important as food sources in four Dehcho communities and which fish species are used for human food from these lakes using Traditional Knowledge. 2) To train community monitors to collect fish and other samples according to Environment Canada and Department of Fisheries and Oceans protocol. 3) To involve local school children i...
