Fisheries Offset and Management Plans

We help clients acquire and comply with Fisheries Act Authorizations. We also develop fisheries offset and compensation plans and metrics and perform analyses using baseline and post-impact data that allow corporate entities to maintain operations that may have an environmental impact.

We began preparing fisheries management plans, wetland management plans and species status reports in 2005 for clients such as the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority, Environment Canada and Fisheries and Oceans Canada. Using our extensive experience with fish and habitat assessments we provide recommendations on how rivers, lakes or wetlands may be best managed to enhance fish populations, community structure, and water quality.
