Projects Invasive species, Harwich Haven

Client: Harwich Haven Authority
Location: Stour Estuary, Essex and Orwell Estuary, Suffolk

The brief

In anticipation of the Ballast Water Management Convention becoming ratified in 2017, Harwich Haven Authority commissioned Thomson Unicomarine’s marine consultancy team to investigate and describe the invasive species present within their harbour boundary.

What Thomson Ecology did for the client

The outcome

The report was completed on time and to budget and was well received. We were able to advise Harwich on what steps they would need to take next to prepare for any requirements imposed by the Ballast Water Management Convention. This would include the management of ballast waters to reduce the probability of the introduction of marine invasive species. This work has been reported on in industry magazines.
