Our aquatic ecology and fisheries surveys continue
We have been busy undertaking freshwater ecology surveys, and we have provided a selection of current fieldwork photos below. The surveys we have been undertaking include electrofishing surveys, kick sampling, freshwater pearl mussel surveys, white-clawed crayfish surveys, river habitat surveys, and chemical water quality surveys.

The surveys are being undertaken to inform the environmental impact assessments of projects such as proposed wind energy developments. We are also currently undertaking a major national assignment for Irish Water to assess the impact of Waste Water Treatment Plants on Freshwater Pearl Mussel populations. We also have some interesting projects coming up, including a major survey of Carrigadrohid Reservoir, Co Cork, so subscribe to our NEWSDESK to receive regular updates.
