Fisheries Offset and Management Plans
We help clients acquire and comply with Fisheries Act Authorizations. We also develop compensation metrics and offset calculations using baseline and post-impact analyses 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.
