Carcinus was commissioned to design and implement a multidisciplinary marine ecological survey of the approach channel and turning basin of Victoria Harbour, Hartlepool. The purpose of the study was to inform an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), with respect to predicted impacts of the proposed dredging and construction operations associated with scheme.
Carcinus Limited was commissioned to provide specialist marine ecology survey and reporting services in support of a new vessel lay-by berth within the entrance to the River Medina, East Cowes for the purposes of informing a marine licence application for dredge spoil disposal and an ecological impact assessment.

The need for a comprehensive sediment sampling programme was identified and delivered, to fully characterise the subtidal benthic ecology and sediment chemistry within and surrounding the proposed development.
