Temporal trends and spatial variations in persistent organic pollutants and metals in sea-run char from the Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: This study is designed to determine what the levels of contaminants are in char when these fish return from feeding in the ocean in the summer. This is the fourth year of a study investigating the contaminant levels in sea-run Arctic char as they return from feeding in the ocean. The reason this study is being conducted is to provide communities with more information on the chemical levels in t...

Inuvialuit Settlement Region: Marine Exploratory Fishery
Principal Investigator: Stabler, Matt
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2005
Summary: The mark recovery program is part of a larger experimental fishery investigation aimed at providing information required to assess the potential of initiating small-scale, community-based commercial fisheries within the ISR. An initial test transect will be established adjacent to the Tuk Peninsula. Transect lines will then be established to the east reflective of habitat representation. It is...

The Role of Traditional Knowledge in Inuvialuit Marine Mammal Management
Principal Investigator: Ris, Mats
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: The purpose of this study is to understand how Inuvialuit traditional knowledge and hunting of marine mammals has influenced the way local and regional management strategies are built up. Secondly, the researcher will make a comparison with other forms of marine mammal harvesting in circumpolar regions. Such a comparison will make it easier to understand the nature of subsistence hunting in the n...

Licensed Year(s): 1992 1991
Summary: The researcher and his team will collect arctic marine life such as fishes, invertebrates and sea algaes in order to contribute to the conservation of marine environments, and deepen understanding of arctic marine life. Tokyo Sea Life Park has started research on breeding behavior and early life history of arctic marine animals, as well as exhibits in the Tokyo Sea Life Park of arctic marine anim...

Genetic differences in some North Atlantic populations of the barnacle "Semibalanus balanoides L."
Principal Investigator: Bourget, Edwin
Licensed Year(s): 1991
Summary: The Researcher will collect a few hundred barnacles from the shores near Iqaluit and examine their genetic background. The objective of the study is to test the hypothesis that the Greenland and Labrador and Gulf of St. Lawrence populations could be genetically close and very distinct from the North American populations south of Cabot Strait....

To determine the productivity of the most important components of marine mammal food chains
Principal Investigator: Welch, Harold
Licensed Year(s): 1988
Summary: To study epontic algae and amphipods in Chesterfield inlet area; to determine dynamics of Si and N as essential nutrients; to sample stomach contents of hunter-killed seals for food habit analysis....
