Resource development can lead to the harmful alteration, disruption, or destruction of fish habitat. During Diavik Diamond Mine, Inc.’s (DDMI) development of its facilities at Lac de Gras (LDG), NWT, DDMI destroyed two small headwater lakes and associated streams. To help offset this loss, DDMI...
Northern Canada is currently undergoing rapid mineral extraction development. As part of this development there is a need to perform fish habitat compensation projects and build effective fish passage facilities. There is currently limited information available on the hydraulics of nature-like...
I investigated the population and landscape genetics of Arctic Grayling (Thymallus arcticus) distributed throughout several connected river systems in Alberta, Canada. Broad- and fine-scale population structure was examined by genotyping nine microsatellite loci in 1,116 Arctic Grayling captured...
The development of the Diavik diamond mine destroyed pristine lakes and streams in Barrenlands region of northern Canada. Subsequently, several fish habitat compensation projects were undertaken to offset these losses. The M-Lakes project was intended to enhance the productive capacity of a...
In the Rocky Mountain foothills of Alberta, Canada, activities of the forestry and energy sectors have resulted in the installation of tens of thousands of stream-crossing structures. In fifteen Athabasca River basins I found that culverts impeded upstream movements of non-sportfish species...
