Coastal and Freshwater

Assessments of ecological effects

Our team of specialist marine and freshwater scientists have developed effective and practical predictive models, guidelines and methodologies specifically designed to meet end-user needs. They offer cost-effective and practical solutions for a wide range of resource management areas, from sustainable development of aquatic resources through to environmental restoration.

Services include:

  • Risk analyses and predictive modelling
  • Development of guidelines, standards and management tools
  • Catchment and coastal management, including restoration and remediation plans

Cawthron's tools, data and capabilities in this area include:

  • Predictive flow-based habitat models (e.g. Instream Flow Incremental Methodology), trout energetics-based flow models, hydrodynamic models
  • Dilution-dispersion models
  • Water and sediment quality models
  • Nutrient-phytoplankton-zooplankton models
  • Food web models
  • Fish population models
  • Bio-economic models
