Mayoklihok Lake fisheries survey
Principal Investigator: Hynes, Kristin
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this research project is to determine what species inhabit the lake and collect measurements and samples from the fish to determine age, length, weight, contaminant levels, and general condition to gain more information on population structure. Information will be reported back to the Olokhaktomiut Hunters and Trappers Committee (OHTC). Two monitors will use fishing nets and/...

Close Encounters: Continued Investigations into 19th-20th Century Copper Inuit and European Intersocietal Interaction
Principal Investigator: Johnson, Donald S.
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Project a: essentially fifth year of research (sixth-year if associated work in 2000 is counted), and seeks to continue heretofore successful investigations into the nature, substance and long-term effects of contact between Copper Inuit and Europeans/Eurocanadians in the 19th and 20th centuries utilizing sociocultural, archaeological, and economic methodologies, b. Project seeks to initiate a col...

UrEnergy 2006 Screech Lake Baseline Program
Principal Investigator: Schryer, Rick P.
Licensed Year(s): 2006
Summary: Sampling of water, sediment, benthic invertebrates, fish inventories, and fish habitat mapping will be done. Water will be collected for chemical analysis, and limnology measurements taken. Sediment will be collected for chemical analysis and particle size analysis. Benthic invertebrates will be collected for taxonomic identification. Fish species, presence and relative abundance will be determine...

Biological studies of waters along the proposed Mackenzie Gas Pipeline route - Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licensed Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: This study is designed to fill gaps in Environment Canada’s understanding of the aquatic environment potentially impacted by various aspects of the Mackenzie Gas Project (MGP). Potential stressors including: increased erosion, nutrient releases from sewage discharges, other chemical releases, water withdrawals, impacts of barge traffic, increased atmospheric emissions, etc. The focus will be on th...

Damoti Gold
Principal Investigator: Hamm, Sharleen
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: Exploration efforts at the Damoti Lake property (concentrating on the Horseshoe Zone) are intended to improve gold-bearing ore estimates at the site. As part of the pre-feasibility work, alternatives for tailings disposal will be studied, including depositing tailings into natural water bodies (Lardass Lake, Unnamed Lake, Pond 1 and 2), and/or using land-based methods, such as thickened tailings a...

Stock Delineation of Fish Species in the Mackenzie River
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licensed Year(s): 2006
Summary: This study involves the determination of the population structure of fish in the Mackenzie River. Specific objectives include the delineation of stocks of three fish species: loche (Lota lota), crookedback (Coregonus clupeaformis) and coney (Stenodus leucicthys), and the identification of downstream fisheries as mixed-stock or single-stock fisheries. A population genetics approach will be employed...

Population abundance and vital rates of fish harvested from lakes along the Mackenzie Valley pipeline route – Loon Lake 2005
Principal Investigator: Toyne, Melanie J
Licensed Year(s): 2005
Summary: The proposed Mackenzie natural gas pipeline route crosses Loon River, which connects Loon Lake to the Mackenzie River. It is important to collect information on fish species in Loon Lake to compared with after the proposed pipeline is built to determine if any changes have occured. All field crew transported to Loon Lake via North-Wright twin otter floatplane. Crew will set nets to catch fish an...

Fish health and population assessment adjacent to Diavik mining activities on Lac de Gras.
Principal Investigator: Gray, Michelle A
Licensed Year(s): 2005
Summary: Research team members will be transported to site via Diavik air charters. Field collections will be conducted from boats provided by Diavik. The different collection gear types will be gillnets, trapnets, and angling. The target sample sizes at each of three sites will be a maximum of 100 lake trout, and 100 whitefish or cisco (to be determined based on catch success rates). Twenty fish of eac...
