Research and Inventory

Research and inventory is arguably Mainstreamís strongest area of expertise. We excel in the development and implementation of scientifically defensible programs that effectively address our clientís needs. Our knowledge of sampling protocols, statistical analyses, combined with our expertise in the use of a wide variety of sampling methods allows us to address simple to very complex questions.

The firm has a comprehensive inventory of field equipment needed to conduct a broad range of aquatic investigations. We undertake many types of studies that include fish and fish habitat surveys, monitoring of stream discharge, water and sediment chemistry collections, characterizing river and lake morphology, and invertebrate sampling (peripyton, phytoplankton, zooplankton, and benthic invertebrates). This is supported by laboratory equipment and skills needed to process the collected data.
