Managing the aquatic system requires understanding the physical, biological and chemical relationships between its components and how these interact with the human and regulatory environments.

HESL scientists have an in depth understanding of aquatic ecosystem processes, of the multiple stressors that act on them and of how these can be incorporated into the management process. This understanding allows us to efficiently sample, interpret and explain the components and processes of aquatic systems and to work with stakeholders to achieve the necessary balance in perspective and application. Our expertise is applied to a broad range of problems in aquatic science using a variety of current and specialized techniques.

Our project experience includes:
