Aquatic Biology

Managing waterways and protecting aquatic species and habitat requires a balanced approach between natural factors and external environmental impacts. Our aquatic biologists bring a depth of knowledge and insight to waterways, providing creative solutions for complex projects.

Expert Knowledge, Deep Relationships

Our aquatic biologists conduct a variety of studies in freshwater habitats to determine presence of special-status fish, reptile, amphibian, and invertebrate species and to describe the potential for the habitat to support these species. We work closely with the state and federal wildlife agencies, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, regional water quality control boards, and other agencies to develop and implement plans to protect species and aquatic ecosystems, including translocation or relocation of species if necessary.

Technology Streamlines Your Project

We use customized mobile data collection software, drone-based aerial surveys including LIDAR, and automated water quality monitoring equipment to streamline data collection and study preparation, so your project is completed faster.
