Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences

Arsenault has 26-years of experience in fisheries and aquatic sciences, with a very strong understanding of aquatic ecosystem communities (i.e.,fish, invertebrates, and limnology). We have worked on aquatic ecosystems in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and the NWT. Specific aquatic expertise includes Benthic Invertebrates Sampling and Population Analysis, Fish and fish habitat inventories, Fish Stock Assessment, Fish Passage Assessments, River, Stream and Wetland Restoration Design and permitting, Bathymetric Surveys, Water Quality Sampling and Monitoring, Fish and Mussel Salvage, Fish and Aquatic Habitat Compensation Planning and Monitoring, Oil-Spill Monitoring and Ecological Restoration Monitoring, and Riparian Area Regulation (RAR) Assessments. In the Okanagan region, qualified professional (QP or QEP) checklists are required for works proposed in or near Okanagan Large Lakes as part of the Okanagan Large Lakes Foreshore Protocol.
