ECOFACT has extensive, specialist experience in conducting a wide range of ecological field assessments in relation to the freshwater environment and we are experts in the provision of fisheries and aquatic ecology assessments. Across the range of our freshwater services we have demonstrable scientific and professional experience in the completion of studies ranging from one-off biological water quality assessments to protected species surveys, ongoing water quality monitoring and fisheries and freshwater habitat management.
Freshwater consultancy services provided by ECOFACT have included ecological impact assessments for major infrastructures schemes, catchment wide surveys for salmon and lamprey species and national monitoring programmes for protected aquatic species such as white-clawed crayfish Austropotamobius pallipes. The findings of some of our major assessments have been published in the Irish Wildlife Manuals Series by the National Parks and Wildlife Service.

We also work extensively in the private sector, and our skills are particularly sought after in relation to the design, assessment and development of small hydroelectric power schemes in both Ireland and the UK.
