Monitoring & Species Survey

We provide a range of survey methods and monitoring services necessary for assessing and monitoring habitat quality in marine and inland water systems and adjacent land areas.

These include water quality assessments, species composition, and surveys of above- and below-water habitat types using dive operations, site surveys, sampling, echosounder and drone surveys.

In our team, research divers with many years of experience take care of underwater data collection. Our field biologists collect data on land. The samples are analyzed in our laboratory, and the results are processed according to customer requirements, e.g. as a GIS layer.
