Abstract


We document the first occurrence of Pygmy Whitefish (Prosopium coulterii) in the Northwest Territories outside of Great Bear Lake. Six specimens were captured in Bluefish Lake in September 2012. Bluefish Lake is on the Yellowknife River, approximately 25 km upstream from Great Slave Lake.
