Freshwater Consulting is a specialist river and wetland consultancy.
Over the years, Freshwater Consulting’s members have contributed to the development and/or refinement of many scientific methodologies that presently aid in river management. These include among others, ecological status assessment, river importance, SASS biomonitoring and Instream Flow Requirements.
Current research projects include development of a water quality index for urban environments, investigating the role of disturbance on invertebrate communities in rivers, characterising ecologically relevant flows for invertebrate assemblages, and the development of national tools for assessing wetland health.
Freshwater Consulting is closely associated with the Freshwater Research Centre (FRC).
