We provide creative and comprehensive fisheries and aquatic science services to help solve some of the most complex scientific and regulatory challenges.

The ESA fish and aquatic sciences practice functions across the entire project life cycle—from strategic planning and permitting, to study design and field implementation, all the way through to analysis, reporting, and public outreach. Our multidisciplinary expertise enables us to provide complete and integrated fisheries and aquatic sciences services. This includes use of advanced technologies to solve some of the most complex scientific and regulatory challenges.

Our team is skilled at working together with clients to create a shared vision for project success. We strive to help our clients find solutions to complex aquatic resource issues, and we understand that it takes consistent communication and careful listening with clients and partners to achieve progress. Direct coordination in every step of the project life cycle is critical, and at ESA we create an atmosphere of open engagement with our clients to ensure project goals are met.
