As well as consultancy, we develop in-house a wide range of analytical and educational software, and publish classic scientific texts in electronic format.
Specialist environmental consultants to the power industry
We have years' experience in tackling the problems of fish impingement and entrainment in power station cooling water intakes, and the full range of other environmental problems associated with large-scale water use.
As well as power plant ecology, we work in a wide range of other disciplines, offering consultancy to industry, conservation groups, and other clients across the world.
Our software and e-books are used by professionals, academics and students worldwide; we are authors of the definitive book on the marine fish of the British Isles

This makes us a world-class consultancy and the UK's leading authority on the ecological effects of water abstraction. Our unique ecological team combines international experience, biological knowledge, and statistical expertise.
