Hatchery and natural-origin fish interactions; broodstock assessments
Life cycle modeling; stock-recruitment analysis; mark-recapture survival rate and population abundance estimation.
With experience in broad-scale effects of toxicants on an ecological scale to the biochemical effects at the cellular level, we successfully assist clients to understand effects and risk on human and aquatic health.
Surface water and soil monitoring; human health, aquatic life risk assessment
Toxicity testing on plants, fish; mesocosm and flow-through toxicity testing; seawater challenge evaluation
eDNA data collection and analysis; risk assessment
In addition to research, MHE conducts service projects, including fish salvage and transport, invasive species removal, pond and lake fisheries enhancement, and water quality analysis.
