Professional services

Ambioterra, with its dynamic team of experts in biology, environmental science, and geography, offers a full range of resources and services for the protection and conservation of the environment. Two examples of our achievements.

2012-2013: Contract for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO). DFO commisioned Ambioterra as part of its program to reestablish the channel darter in collaboration with the team for the re-establishment of cyprinids and small perch in Quebec. The mandate was to carry out targeted surveys, compile the presence and abundance index from the catch per unit effort and make a habitat characterization using the appropriate techniques for the channel darter within the bounds of the area prioritized for the English River. Other areas were covered by the mandate, including the Outardes River East and the Trout River.

2013: A compensation project for the City of Châteauguay. To compensate for the negative impact of stabilization work on a slope facing the Châteauguay River near 550 Upper River Road in the municipality of Châteauguay, Ambioterra had the mandate to develop a project to conserve and restore the fish habitat within an area of 2200 square meters. This was a project to protect and restore riparian strips in a section of the English River, a tributary of the Châteauguay River, close to an area proposed as critical habitat for the endangered channel darter.
