Dolly Varden Char Assessment in the Peel Plateau
Principal Investigator: Maier, Kris
Licensed Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to re-assess the anadromous component of the known Vittrekwa River Dolly Varden char population; 2) to investigate & assess other potential suitable Dolly Varden habitat; and 3) to confirm the presence of Dolly Varden char in the Stony Creek watershed. For the Vittrekwa River the research team plans to construct a fixed weir which will trap se...

Great Bear River Environmental and Traditional Knowledge Baseline Program
Principal Investigator: Lennie-Misgeld, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2011 2010
Summary: The main objective of the program is to collect fisheries and environmental baseline information to better understand the environmental characteristics of the Great Bear River and to support potential future development of hydropower on the Great Bear River. The program is not being conducted to support a specific project as there are no hydropower projects planned for the Great Bear River at thi...

Circumpolar Flaw Lead (CFL) System Study - Part 1 (Ship-based research)
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licensed Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: The Circumpolar Flaw Lead (CFL) system study is designed to examine the importance of climate processes in changing the nature of a flaw lead system and the Arctic marine environment in the Northern Hemisphere, and the effect these changes will have on the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, carbon fluxes, and greenhouse gases. Using the Canadian Research Icebreaker (CCGS Amundsen), the team ...

Investigation of Vittrekwa River Dolly Varden
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licensed Year(s): 2006
Summary: The northern subspecies of Dolly Varden char is represented by only five populations in Canada. Of these populations, the Vittrekwa River Dolly Varden has been least studied. In the late 1990s, the presence of this fish was confirmed by the Gwich’in Renewable Resource Board and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Data collected through studies conducted by these organizations showed that at le...

Arctic Red River Fish Study
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licensed Year(s): 2006
Summary: Currently, little information exists on the fisheries resources of the Arctic Red River. Baseline information on fisheries resources is required to make sound management decisions. This information (e.g., biological characteristics of fish: length, weight, age at maturity, migration patterns, date of spawning; presence/absence of species) is collected through long-term studies, traditional knowled...

Assessment of lake trout stocks in Great Bear Lake
Principal Investigator: Howland, Kimberly
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006 2005
Summary: The objectives of this research are: 1) to gather baseline data on size, age structure, fecundity (egg number per female), growth and mortality for lake trout in the study area; 2) to determine if lake trout are genetically distinct between basins of Great Bear Lake; and, 3) to determine the extent of movements by lake trout in Great Bear Lake by using molecular genetics. Field crews will be tr...

Fisheries Survey of Hill Creek (located on Highway 3)
Principal Investigator: Dahl-Fequet, Monica L
Licensed Year(s): 2005
Summary: The objective of this project is to collect biological and hydrological information on Hill Creek. It is unknown as to whether or not the culvert at the Hill Creek highway crossing is large enough to allow for the spring migration of spawning fish. The researchers will collect fisheries and habitat information on Hill Creek. This data will include fish presence/absence, lifestage and species com...

Continued Radio-Tracking of Broad Whitefish (Coregonus nasus) in the Travaillant Lake System, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Harris, Les
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: In this study, researchers will use helicopters and radio telemetry to identify the seasonal movement patterns of Travaillant Lake broad whitefish, and their use of specific habitats and critically important areas such as those used for spawning, rearing and overwintering. For the management of fish and fisheries in the face of industrial development and exploration, it is essential to collect suc...

Matthews Lake and Area Fish Habitat Restoration Project (MLAFHRP)
Principal Investigator: MacNeill, Scott W
Licensed Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: Approximately 200 m of contiguous degraded shoreline habitat at Matthews Lake will be identified during initial field investigations and will be further subdivided into two 100m 'control' and 'treatment' sites. Prior to the rehabilitation of the 'treatme...

2004 Aquatic (Fish) Surveys in the Gahcho KuÚ (Kennady Lake) Area
Principal Investigator: Slaney, Tim
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2004 2001 2000
Summary: This program will investigate fish movements between the lake and tributary habitats, and between various habitat types within the lake. In addition, a detailed inventory of the tributary lake and streams will be completed. Field crew will be housed in t...
