Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences

Ecoscape has a breadth of experience in fisheries and aquatic sciences. We possess a strong understanding of aquatic ecosystem communities (i.e., fish, invertebrates, and flora) and functions, and are proficient with the diversity of collection methods and standards employed by the industry. Our key staff have worked on aquatic ecosystems in British Columbia, Alberta, north to the Territories and east throughout Ontario. With a fleet of commercial vessels and properly trained staff, we are able to access remote sites and safely navigate inland waters ranging from large lakes and hydroelectric reservoirs to turbulent rivers. We pride ourselves for our strength in field logistics, and our ability to quickly adapt and troubleshoot to ensure safe and effective field data collection.
