Aquatic Environmental Effects Monitoring - Flat River at Cantung Mine
Principal Investigator: Hoos, Rick
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2009 2002
Summary: The objectives of this research are: (1) to determine length, weight, and general condition of 100 fish and tissue analysis of not more than 10 fish (Slimy Sculpin- Cottus cognatus) per site at five site locations in the Flat River: two locations upstream of the CanTung mine site, one adjacent to the mine site and at two locations downstream of the mine site; and, (2) to determine sediment and w...

Fall 2001 Mackenzie Delta Aquatics Survey
Principal Investigator: Jalkotzy, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2001 2000
Summary: Selection of lakes for this program was based on: size (diameter/depth); fish over-wintering potential; connectivity with other waterbodies; and the likelihood of intensive (3D) seismic activity occurring within the lakes during the winter of 2001-02. A total of 6 lakes have been identified for inclusion in the survey. Three alternate lakes have also been identified in the event that those selec...

Ranch Lake Environmental Base-line Study
Principal Investigator: Somji, Feisal
Licensed Year(s): 1995
Summary: The researcher will conduct an intensive gillnetting program using multi-mesh gillnet gangs to determine the size and characteristics of fish populaitons in the project area. Both floating and bottom sets will be used, perpendicular and parallel to the shoreline. It is proposed that 40 fish of each species found will be taken from each lake sampled....

Abundance and Distribution of Bowhead Whales in Foxe Basin
Principal Investigator: Cosens, Sue
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: The researcher will make daily flights from Igloolik to look for bowheads. The researcher will estimate the relative abundance, assess stock status and describe the spring distribution and movements of the bowheads in Foxe Basin. The researcher will also locate a study site where a hydrophone array could be set up to count migrating bowheads in future years....

Environmental Study of the Aquatic Resources of the Thonokeid Lake Area
Principal Investigator: Couture, Richard
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1994 1993
Summary: Rescan Environmental Services Ltd. will continue their study on the types of fish and other aquatic organisms found in the Thonokeid Lake area. Data on species type as well as their age, abundance and habitat will be collected. In addition, muscle and liver tissue of fish will be collected in order to assess for the presence of heavy metal contaminants. This study will be summarized in an envir...

Collection of Inuit traditional knowledge of the distribution and biology of High Arctic beluga and narwhal
Principal Investigator: Stewart, D. Bruce
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: The researchers will be documenting Inuit traditional knowledge of the distribution, abundance and biology of High Arctic beluga and narwhal. This information will be used to identify research and management needs for local and co-management plans. A questionnaire will be used to interview elders and hunters; the interviewer will be a community resident. Information will be compiled into a repo...

Shallow water benthic fish communities of Resolute Bay
Principal Investigator: Green, John M.
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1990 1988
Summary: As part of a long-term study, I will continue to make underwater observations of the benthic fishes found in the shallow waters of Resolute Bay. Some fish will be collected for further laboratory studies in order to examine their food habits, growth rates and population growth rates. The species Gymnelus viridis will be studied in greater detail....

Regional synchrony of lemming populations in the northern Yukon and Tuktoyaktuk region
Principal Investigator: Krebs, Charles
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The researchers will examine the cycles in lemming abundance (i.e., increases and decreases in the lemming population) for the western arctic region. Ongoing research suggests that lemmings in the Pearce Point area do not appear to reach very high numbers as has been noted in the eastern arctic and Scandinavia. Licence issued for use of Inuvik Research Centre....

Monitoring arctic charr caught in domestic fishery by residents of Paulatuk at the Hornaday River, NWT, 1993
Principal Investigator: Harwood, Lois
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: HTC members have counted, measured and sampled all fish that were caught in the domestic fishery located at the mouth of the Hornaday River for the past several years. This season represents the fourth year of the monitoring program. HTC members will collect information on arctic charr that are caught by the fishery....

Distribution, abundance, productivity, survival and habitat of white-fronted geese, Canada geese, Pacific brant and tundra swans in the Inuvialuit Region.
Principal Investigator: Hines, Jim
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: Data on the distribution, abundance, survival/mortality, and productivity are essential for the sound management of wildlife populations but there is a critical lack of such information for white-fronted geese, Canada geese, Pacific brant and tundra swan populations from the Inuvialuit Settlement Region. Helicopter surveys, ground counts and banding/neck collaring will help to determine distribut...
