Description

In August 2016, the first confirmed occurrence of whirling disease in Canada was found in fish from Johnson Lake in Banff National Park and the Bow River Basin. While the disease has no impact on human health, it can severely impact some salmonid fish populations. Alberta Environment and Parks is committed to implementing management strategies to reduce the risk to susceptible fish populations. As a part of this commitment, the Whirling Disease Innovative Research and Learning (WhIRL) Grant Program was created to support research initiatives that will provide novel information on whirling disease in Alberta. A total of $1,000,000 will be allocated in 2018-19 to fund research proposals. This application package provides more information on program eligibility, grant availability, and reporting requirements, and includes the application form.
