Our consultancy service includes baseline assessments of the water bodies, silt content, marginal vegetation and, fish populations and health. Depending on the clients’ needs we offer both professional advice and perform in-depth analysis of particular problems. Aquatic assessments and surveys are carried out primarily when the ecology (or some element) of a water body is not functioning correctly. The majority of freshwater managers understand how aquatic ecosystems function, but may lack the technical ability to clearly define the problem and formulate specific solutions. We can provide management plans that encompass all the aspects of the aquatic and sometimes terrestrial environment and offer prescriptions to remediate and improve the natural ecology of the site.
