Founded in 2000, Ecofish delivers services in environmental assessment, permitting, mitigation, compliance and effects monitoring, water resources engineering, and wildlife and terrestrial studies, among others. The firm works with energy, power, mining, and infrastructure companies, as well as with First Nations and public sector clients.

Ecofish has approximately 160 employees across offices in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Nova Scotia.

Trinity Consultants’ acquisition of Ecofish will expand its water ecology and aquatic sciences consulting teams to approximately 250 professionals. Ecofish’s leadership team will remain in place following the closing of the deal, for which financial terms were not disclosed.Trinity Consultants buys environmental consultancy Ecofish Research“The Ecofish team is excited to be joining the Trinity Consultants family of businesses,” said Adam Lewish, founder and CEO of Ecofish. “We have been impressed with Trinity’s track record of acquiring and growing related businesses and we think there is great cultural compatibility as both organizations value technical excellence and empowering staff development.”
