A core area of our work is the preparation of water quality, fisheries and aquatic ecology assessments at the planning stage of national infrastructure projects, including roads, railways, water supply schemes, sewerage schemes, and flood alleviation schemes.

Our expert competency in aquatic ecology allows for significant issues such as protected species to be highlighted and addressed early in the project design phase

We offer the highest level of water quality, fisheries and aquatic ecological consultancy, with significant experience in addressing ecological constraints to ensure that projects can progress with the minimum of impact to the natural environment.

Water services offered by FISHFACT include the provision of Receiving Water Impact Assessments (RWIA), Habitats Directive Assessments;, Waste Assimilation Capacity (WAC) modelling; chemical and biological water quality assessments, protected aquatic species surveys, and fisheries assessments. We have the qualifications and experience to provide assessments for all infrastructure developments including water supply schemes, waste water schemes and discharges, and flood defence schemes.

Our expert competency in aquatic ecology allows for significant issues such as protected species to be highlighted and addressed early in the project design phase, to avoid delays later in the project.

It is our strong commitment to ecology and the natural environment that ensures we deliver the best available product to our clients, both to ensure a fast and efficient construction process, while minimising ecological impacts.

For further information on the infrastructure schemes we are currently working on please see  the ‘Infrastructure Projects‘ of our main website.
