Specialist provider of fisheries advice
We are a specialist provider of Fisheries, Fish Passage and Fish Habitat Rehabilitation services. With over 40 years combined experience in the industry, we strive to implement common sense solutions for a variety of issues that will maximise fisheries productivity and maintain native fish populations and habitats.
While we are committed to the protection of the fisheries resources of our region, we are also conscious that our fisheries are a shared resource that should be used by the recreational, commercial, indigenous and non-fisher communities. We work hard to produce outcomes that satisfy stakeholders, regulators and of course the fish!
