When you are looking for an aquatic ecology specialist, it's good to know they have the capability to assist during all stages of a project; from initial planning and due diligence, to permit and licence applications, to post-approval auditing, monitoring and compliance.
Our freshwater aquatic ecologists are experienced and proficient in sampling and identification of aquatic mammals, fish, crustaceans, and macroinvertebrates. In particular we are experienced in aquatic assessment and research on several significant aquatic species, including Australian Grayling Prototroctes maraena, Dwarf Galaxias Galaxiella pusilla, Murray Cod Maccullochella peelii peelii, and Yarra Pygmy Perch Nannoperca obscura.
Using the latest field equipment and laboratory technology, we collect high quality field data across a range of aquatic habitats throughout Australia including estuarine, riverine and wetland habitats. This data enables us to identify macroinvertebrates, often down to species level, and we are accredited in the rapid bioassessment (RBA) protocol and the calculation of macroinvertebrate indices (SIGNAL scores and AUSRIVAS).
