Beluga health and food borne parasites in the Inuvaluit Settlement region
Principal Investigator: Jenkins, Emily J
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The objectives of this project are: 1) to assess the health of the ISR beluga population (body condition, abnormalities, parasites); to test for food borne parasites in beluga in the ISR (Toxoplasma, Trichinella); and, 3) to compare results to other marine mammal populations in the Arctic and beluga elsewhere. The research team weigh, measure, and systematically examine internal organs of harve...

Seal Diet and Condition in the ISR
Principal Investigator: Insley, Stephen J
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The goal of this project is to design and maintain a long-term, locally-based, diet and condition data collection program focused on ringed seals (Pusa hispida) and bearded seals (Erignathus barbatus) in the Darnley Bay and Ulukhaktok areas of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR). To accomplish the objectives, the research team have designed a program to work with the local communities of Pau...

Northwest Territories Power Corporation Twin Gorges Aquatic Effects Monitoring Plan and Sediment and Erosion Management Plan
Principal Investigator: Byrne, Geraldine
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The Aquatic Effects Monitoring Plan (AEMP) and Sediment and Erosion Management Plan (SEMP) are requirements under water license MV2011L0002 issued by the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board (MVLWB). The objective of the AEMP is to monitor and identify potential short-term, long-term and cumulative changes throughout the Taltson River aquatic environment. The objective of the SEMP is to identify...

Conceptual and Mechanistic Models for the Development and Survival of the Trichostrongylid, Ostertagia gruehneri, in Barrenground Caribou, With Respect to Northern Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Hoar, Bryanne M
Licensed Year(s): 2009 2008 2007
Summary: The objective of this study in 2009 is to determine if parasites (Ostertagia gruehneri) can survive on the tundra over winter. This is the third year of a three year study. This work is to study the parasite Ostertagia gruehneri. This is the most common stomach worm in barrenground caribou. Adult worms live in the stomach of caribou and eggs are shed in the feces of the caribou. Once in the env...

Summary: Samples will be initially evaluated on a presence/absence basis and taken further if warranted. The gene probe analytical technique is new and will be employed for all positive samples. Results will be published in a report format which will be submitted to FJMC to FJMC and the HTC. A paper will also be produced for publication in a refereed Journal....

The Broad Whitefish Traditional Ecological Knowledge Study.
Principal Investigator: Freeman, Milton M.R.
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The research team will carry out interviews with the Inuvialuit that are knowledgable about broad whitefish and its fishery in the local waters. Data to be obtained include information on the traditional fishery, changes to this fishery, knowledge about the breeding and feeding habits, migrations, parasites and diseases, and effects of the local environmental changes on whitefish....

Temperature relations and interactions of arctic woolly-bear caterpillars and their insect parasitoids
Principal Investigator: Morewood, Dean
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: Surveys will be conducted in order to: (1) document the life stages of the caterpillars (e.g., eggs, larvae, pupae and adults) during the summer; (2) count the number of caterpillars killed by insect `parasites' or parasitoids; and (3) document the timing of the insect parasitoids's life cycle. Finally, since temperature affects growth, experiments with different temperatures will be use to exami...
