Aquatic Habitat Evaluations


ABR regularly performs assessments of fish habitat in streams and rivers during our fish surveys. These assessments assist our clients in determining the effects of their development or restoration activities on existing fish habitat. Our experience also includes assessments of large-scale aquatic habitat through analysis of high-resolution imagery. By coupling our ground surveys with remote sensing data, we can provide our clients with detailed summaries of available fish habitat over large areas. Our specific areas of expertise include:

  • fish habitat surveys, including measurements of stream flow, stream substrates, stream geomorphology, and riparian vegetation
  • lake bathymetry and total water volume analysis
  • limnology studies
  • detailed photographic and video logs of project areas
