Fisheries Impact Assessment

Fisheries Impact Assessments (FIAs) are sometimes required as part of the statutory Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process and typically comprise of:

•    Comprehensive initial baseline fisheries assessment (desktop review and ground-truthing)
•    Assessment of potential fisheries impacts arising as a result of any development
•    Quantitative evaluation of predicted impacts
•    Recommendation of cost-effective and practicable alternatives and mitigation measures
•    Recommendation of appropriate monitoring and audit protocol programmes


We have experience in:

FIAs for developments covering fisheries resources and habitats and aquaculture sites, including gazetted marine fish culture zones and fish ponds.
