What We Do
One of the most rapidly expanding industries in the 21st century is the environmental sector. As we struggle to cope with an ever expanding population and increasing pressure on the global biosphere, new solutions are required to deal with this pressure. Fishtek Consulting is a fisheries consultancy providing innovative solutions to the problems facing fish populations in both freshwater and marine environments.
Our expertise covers a wide range of areas, including hydropower impact assessments and research (particularly the interaction between fish and hydroturbines); fish pass design, fabrication and installation; eel pass design, fabrication and installation; evaluations of barriers to migration and the migration patterns of fish within rivers; fisheries impact assessments and ecological surveys.
We have a wide and diverse client base, which includes the Environment Agency, National Trust, Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, NOAA Fisheries, Australian Antarctic Division, SEPA, Trent Rivers Trust, Severn Rivers Trust, Westcountry Rivers Trust, Ribble Catchment Conservation Trust, Ouse and Adur Rivers Trust, Tweed Foundation, South West Water, JCB, Mann Power Consulting, Royal Haskoning, River Power, Western Renewable Energy and the New Zealand Fisheries Service as well as a large number of private contractors and clients.
