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...

Reassessment of the Polygonia faunus complex
Principal Investigator: Leski, Michael L
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2011
Summary: A goal of this research project is to conduct a taxonomic assessment of butterflies. The studies objective is primarily to collect a species of butterfly (P. faunus arcticus) from sites in the Yukon and Northwest Territory, including the meadows surrounding Black Mountain in the Richardson Mountains, the Type Locality of this subspecies. These specimens will facilitate research that will assess t...

Collecting of Parasitic wasps (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Microgastrinae)
Principal Investigator: Goulet, Henri
Licensed Year(s): 2010
Summary: The research plan is to collect specimens of as many species (named or not) of the wasp subfamily Microgastrinae (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) to get recent and properly preserved specimens for DNA barcoding and taxonomic resolution. The goal is to know more about the diversity of these wasps and to be able to compare the recently wasp fauna with re-identified specimens sampled in the 1950’s. To achi...

Flora of the Canadian Arctic - diversity and change
Principal Investigator: Gillespie, Lynn J.
Licensed Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: The Research long term goals are to: 1) produce the first “Flora of the Canadian Arctic”, a field guide to all plant species of the Canadian arctic; 2) implement an Arctic Plant website to provide easy access to information; 3) undertake studies on diversity and distribution of arctic plants and mosses; and 4) obtain DNA barcodes for all Canadian Arctic plants. The objectives on Victoria Island in...

Cisco diversity in Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: Drygeese, Jennifer
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objectives of the research are to: 1) Confirm the taxonomy of the Cisco of Great Slave Lake; 2) Characterize age structure and growth of individuals; 3) Determine prey abundance in capture locations; 4) Consult with, and educate local aboriginal and non-aboriginal communities by having them assist in data collection and presenting to communities the results of research. The benefits ...

Molecular and otolith tools to investigate population of origin of Arctic cisco
Principal Investigator: Nielsen, Jennifer L.
Licensed Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: This study aims to: 1) use genetics and otolith (ear bone) microchemistry to determine if differences exist between collections of Arctic cisco (herring) made from tributaries of the Mackenzie River (Canada) and the Colville River (Alaska) and 2) use differences to identify population-of-origin of fish caught in the Colville River subsistence fishery. Approximately 60 Arctic cisco will be colle...

Trudel Creek: Aquatics Assessment for Minimum Flow Threshold
Principal Investigator: Uren, Shane
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The field survey of the fish habitat and community of Trudel Creek and a section of the Taltson River will likely take place during one trip in August, although there is the possibility of a second trip to collect additional information. The field team will fly into Fort Smith and then be transported to the Twin Gorges Camp either by plane or helicopter. Rescan will use a local helicopter company ...

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...

ISR Marine Exploratory Fishery
Principal Investigator: Stabler, James Matt
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2005
Summary: This is a continuation of the ISR exploratory fishery initiated in 2003. The program is part of a larger experimental fishery investigation aimed at providing information required to assess the potential of initiating small-scale, community-based commerc...

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...
