Archipelago Marine Research: program design, management, and reporting services

For more than three decades, Archipelago Marine Research has helped fisheries, coastal communities, and industry regulators to implement sustainable practices through atsea and dockside observer programs, electronic monitoring technology, and marine environmental services.

Archipelago’s fishery monitoring programs are optimized for each fishery, vessel, and gear type; employing human observers or automated alternatives as appropriate. As Western Canada’s largest and longest running observer–services company, Archipelago has led the development of video–based fishery monitoring alternatives for more than a decade; today, the company’s varied portfolio of fishery monitoring programs and services extends throughout North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and beyond. 

Archipelago also provides marine environmental services to help government, industry, and municipal groups balance the needs of our seaside communities with the requirements of the marine environment. Services include coastal planning for commercial businesses, residential developments, and industrial work sites; surveys and assessment for near–shore and offshore development; and monitoring and evaluation of  the marine environment—before, during, and after construction activities—to help minimize disruption to marine habitat.
