The UK’s leading experts in gaining consents and
meeting ecological planning conditions. With so much at stake, why use anyone else?

Thomson Unicomarine has over 30 years marine experience. We have provided specialist marine data management solutions for commercial developers and government bodies, such as the Environment Agency, Cefas and Northern Ireland Environment Agency.

We help clients obtain licences and consents for offshore renewable energy, decommissioning, and other marine constructions, oil and gas extraction, sewage outfalls, fish farms, navigational dredging and disposal, beach recharging, aggregate extraction and all near-shore developments.


Correct identification is of paramount importance to our work at the Environment Agency; we need to be absolutely certain of the species’ ID as it influences WFD estuary fish classification scores. Thomson Unicomarine gave a quick turnaround on the project and provided us with the identifications, dissected specimens and material that we can use as teaching aids...
