Esox Lucius - "Hiulik"
Largely unknown although a few studies have reported the presence of Northern Pike in some lakes on the Yukon North Slope and in Deep Creek.
From 1988 to 1999 Inuvialuit harvest data was collected through the Inuvialuit Harvest Study. Some harvest information about northern pike was collected at this time. There is no restriction on the Inuvialuit harvest of northern pike on the Yukon North Slope.
Yukon sport fishing regulations apply to others fishing on the Yukon North Slope. Parks Canada regulations apply within Ivvavik National Park.
|Sport||Preferential||Sport fishing with licence from GNWT or YTG|
Northern pike attract little to no eco-tourism on the Yukon North Slope.
Some research conducted in the early 1970s as part of the Mackenzie Valley pipeline studies. Information collected included limited distribution data, length/weight relationships, and food habits.

The Fisheries Joint Management Committee makes recommendations to the Minister of Fisheries for all fisheries matters in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region. The FJMC provides the means to jointly set Inuvialuit subsistence quota and allocate such quota among the communities.
Community-based information on this species may be found in the reports of the annual community-based monitoring program conducted in Aklavik and neighbouring communities by the Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Co-op.http://www.taiga.net/coop/community/index.html
