Recover and rebuild.

Whether you need the latest RAS technology to improve your drought resilience or want to develop a new aquaculture site, our biologists, engineers, and construction professionals work in tandem to anticipate challenges and achieve your goals. Our design and approach are elevated because we incorporate operational reviews and guidance to result in efficient facilities that maximize fish production and prioritize fish health and employee safety.

scopes of work

We've got you covered.

  • Warm, cool, and cold-water fish species
  • Conservation, sport fisheries, and commercial aquaculture
  • Mitigation of climate change impacts and watershed planning
  • Intimate knowledge of federal (NOAA’s NMFS, USFWS, BUREC, and USACE) and state agency processes and guidelines
  • Negotiations and coordination with agencies, tribes, and varying stakeholders with competing interests
  • Siting studies, feasibility and modernization evaluations, alternatives analysis, and master planning
  • NPCC 3-step review process for Independent Scientific Review Panel (ISRP)
  • Hatchery Management Plans (HMP)
  • Hatchery Genetic Management Plans (HGMP)
  • Bio-programming (production, rearing, and flow requirements)
  • Health disease management (biosecurity)
  • Predation prevention measures  
  • Incubation systems (incubation trays/stacks, bell jar systems, tempered water delivery systems, and treatment systems)
  • Rearing vessels, raceways, circular tanks, and earthen and lined ponds
  • Partial or full Re-use Aquaculture Systems (PRAS/RAS)
  • Flow-through systems
  • Water supply (e.g., wells, aquifers, rivers, lakes) gravity-fed or the diversion of other sources)
  • Water distribution (e.g., head tanks, intakes, pumps, valves, pipelines, gates, and screens)
  • Water quality/treatment (filtration, degassing, aeration, oxygenation, sterilizing, chilling systems and heat exchangers, temperature control, and energy recovery)
  • Hydrologic analysis (flow volumes, frequency analysis, flow duration, hydrologic modeling (HEC-HMS), and hydrologic statistics (HEC-SSP)
  • Hydraulic analysis (open channel flow, hydraulic modeling (HEC-RAS 1D and 2D), outlet/spillway capacity, stage discharge-curves, and energy dissipation performance)
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling (Flow-3D)
  • Effluent treatment (settling basins, ponds, clarifiers, and disinfection using NPDES requirements)
  • Broodstock collection, fish weirs, fish traps, and spawning systems
  • Monitoring (fully automated SCADA systems)
  • Offices, buildings, shops, climate-controlled feed rooms, and residences
  • MEP (mechanical/HVAC, electrical/fire protection, and plumbing including instrumentation and controls, power station design, and solar and backup generation)
  • All types of fire suppression systems (water, clean agent, gaseous, and hybrid suppression); fire alarm systems; smoke control; hydrant systems; and property fire breaks
  • All heavy civil works, building construction, access roads, installation of equipment, and testing, commissioning, and operational procedures development and training
