Tasmanian leaders in the assessment of marine, estuarine and freshwater environments

Aquenal is a team of scientists with specialist expertise in the assessment of marine, estuarine and freshwater environments. Our services cover environmental analysis and management – including impact assessments, field surveys and compliance monitoring, threatened species and biodiversity management, and marine and freshwater taxonomy.

Aquenal was formed in the mid-1990s to meet the needs of an expanding marine farming industry in Tasmania. Since that time, Aquenal has evolved as a business and is now regarded as a leading service provider in the field of marine environmental analysis and consultancy.

Our reputation is built on providing specialist marine ecological expertise, a high standard of reporting and quality control, a commitment to client needs, and integrity in all aspects of our operation.

Aquenal’s study environments include the coastal foreshore, estuaries, freshwater and both nearshore and offshore areas of the marine environment. We have undertaken projects at sites from tropical through to temperate environments of Australia.

The quality and integrity of Aquenal’s services are based on the skills and dedication of our experienced team, which consists of experts in marine biology, ecology, taxonomy and data analysis, with strong practical skills and highly experienced field capabilities. Extensive in-house expertise enables Aquenal to provide an integrated service suited to a wide range of multi-faceted environmental projects.

The meaning of ‘Aquenal’: AQU = aquatic, EN = environment, AL = analysts. The term ‘aquatic’ encompasses both oceanic and freshwater environments.

Aquenal’s logo: Orange ‘A’ represents the land, turquoise waves represent water, and we work in both areas.
