Fish surveys

We have over 30 years’ experience undertaking fisheries surveys, and assessments in marine, estuarine and freshwater environments.

As leading experts in fish taxonomy, we administer the fish component of the NE Atlantic Marine Biological Analytical Quality Control (NMBAQC) scheme. Our fish specialists audit 30 laboratories across the UK and Europe on fish identification for quality assurance.

  • Fish rescues using nets and electric-fishing
  • Fish passage
  • Water quality
