Inis ecologists have commenced macroinvertebrate surveys this week on a number of large projects on which we are working.
One of the most efficient ways of assessing the quality of a river or stream is by studying the macroinvertebrates that live in it. Larval invertebrates and crustaceans are all packages of information that can be vital indicators of water quality. We look for changes in the macroinvertebrate population as indications of the quality and overall health of a specific stream or river. At INIS Ecology our team of ecologists has significant experience of freshwater ecological assessment and regularly conducts field survey for both development projects and conservation initiatives.
