Marine Mammal and Protected & Endangered Species Observers: Permitting, Compliance & Mitigation Services

Saltwater has provided Marine Mammal Observers (MMO) for special projects since 1990, when a team of biologists collected data on the impact of commercial fishing on marine mammals in Cordova, Alaska. Since then, we have provided certified marine mammal and endangered/protected species observers (ESO & PSO) to both government and industry clients. Saltwater’s scientists offer comprehensive permitting, compliance, and mitigation support for both research and industry projects. 

Clients operating in offshore and/or nearshore environments can count on Saltwater to deliver the support and expertise needed to meet project-specific regulatory obligations, and provide complete qualified observer coverage through every project phase. We currently partner with other established consultants to offer additional marine mammal, protected species and endangered species research and mitigation services.
