Description: 

A survey of muskrat pushups was conducted in spring 2013 along the Slave River
from just north of Fort Chipewyan to Great Slave Lake. Densities and abundance
of pushups were highest in the Slave River Delta, where wetlands provide good
muskrat habitat. The survey provides a baseline of information that can be compared
to future surveys, and enables environmental change to be tracked over time.

Muskrat pushup abundance along the Slave River
This project was a Slave River and Delta Partnership1 (SRDP) led initiative, a collaboration of many partners. The SRDP also collaborated with the Peace-Athabasca Delta Ecological Monitoring Program and Parks Canada who were undertaking a survey of the Peace-Athabasca Delta and Alberta stem of the
Slave River.

Impacts of Linear Development on Fish
Linear developments such as roads, pipelines and seismic lines usually cross
water bodies. This can have an impact on fish and fish habitat. Impacts can
include the blocking of migration routes that prevents fish from feeding,
spawning and accessing over-wintering areas, or contamination from leaks
and spills that poison fish or the food fish eat.
