The Project consist of a habitat enhancement at the Bluefish Hydroelectric Facility (the Bluefish Facility), more specifically, the placement of 400m2 of suitable spawning substrate in the Yellowknife River downstream of the Generators, in the Tailrace Area. After completing a detailed assessment of all potential mitigation and offsetting measures as part of the application for the FAA the Bluefish Habitat Enhancement project was proposed by NTPC as it has a high probability of success and large potential positive impact to local fisheries as it was based off of habitat installation principles proven in a pilot study at Bluefish and approved by DFOThis habitat will modify the bed of the Yellowknife River in the Tailrace Area in order to provide spawning opportunities for Lake Trout, Lake Whitefish and/or Cisco. This Project is required under the Fisheries Act Authorizations 18-HCAA-01487 and will be undertaken within Territorial Land Lease 085J09017.
