CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT & INSPECTION

Fish facilities can be surprisingly complex, and the regulatory agencies are watching. MacKay Sposito provides the expertise you need for a variety of projects: upstream and downstream passage, floating surface collectors, volitional passage, trap and haul, hatcheries, acclimation facilities, guide and exclusion nets, and intakes. We'll ensure your project runs smoothly, satisfies the regulators, and - most important - meets your goals.

OUR EXPERTISE

Fish passage

Fish Passage

Upstream or down, no matter the path, we’ll make sure that your fish passages remain navigable and free from obstruction. Our experts in the field will monitor quality during construction and make sure that no existing structures are disturbed.

Hatcheries and acclimation facilities

Hatcheries & Acclimation Facilities

River beds and river edges are highly sensitive sites that are extensively protected. MacKay Sposito has the expertise to efficiently navigate the regulatory environment so that your hatchery or acclimation project is quickly constructed and highly productive.

Habitat enhancement

Habitat Enhancement

Protecting streams and shorelines is both a responsibility and an expectation. Our expertise in limiting environmental impacts and knowledge of permitting requirements combine to keep projects free from unexpected and unwelcome delays.
