A mass-balanced ecopath model of Great Slave Lake to support an ecosystem approach to fisheries management: Fs97-6/3138E-PDF

preliminary results /

We describe the sub-Arctic Great Slave Lake (GSL) ecosystem using a mass-balance model to understand trophic interactions, sustainability and ecosystem health. The objective of this report is to describe the Ecopath with Ecosim (EwE) model of the GSL ecosystem including data sources, model parameterisation, functional groups, data gaps, trophic interactions, and ecological network analysis to describe the ecosystem attributes and results of few preliminary simulations to understand the impact of fisheries and climate change. This work is a part of the Northwest Territories Cumulative Impact Monitoring Program (NWT CIMP) and Aquatic Climate Change Adaptation Services Program (ACCASP)
