Fisheries and Aquaculture

Fisheries expertise across tropical, temperate and Arctic waters

Fisheries and aquatic ecology form the core of our environmental services. For over 40 years, we have carried out fisheries projects for both public and private clients across Canada and around the world. We regularly manage monitoring programs that assess the effects of development on fish populations and the suitability of fish for consumption by humans and wildlife. Whether establishing compensation habitat or studying the aquatic environment for signs of contamination, we have decades of experience that allow us to identify the best strategies for your project’s particular environmental needs.
