Our team is involved in a number of research projects focusing on aquatic ecology and fisheries.

We undertaken research work as part of contracts with state agencies and private companies, and also on our own initiative.  We are also always working to find innovative solutions to problems facing fish and other aquatic ecological receptors.   One of our key areas of research interest is fish passage research and we are working on both back to nature and technical fish pass designs for both lampreys and European eels.  We are also working innovative ways to protect water quality in sensitive catchments; for example to allow wind farms to be constructed in Freshwater pearl Mussel catchments. Another research area of interest to us is the design of instream physical enhancement programmes that benefit juvenile lamprey production.

Research projects we are undertaking at present include research in the following areas:-
