Environmental consulting 1977-1995

Marine Science & Ecology is a specialist consultancy undertaking ecological assessments of the marine environment in relation to disturbances such as waste Port Kembla Harbour, NSWdischarges and development projects. I joined MSE in 1977 for four weeks casual work as a technical assistant. And stayed for nearly two decades! These years at MSE introduced me to the resilience of the marine environment and the difficulties of detecting and managing environmental impacts. I also got to dive in some rather unusual places!

During my time at MSE, we undertook projects of the following types:

  •         ecological studies for port and industrial developments
  •         ecological studies in marinas and small boat facilities
  •         Environmental Impact Assessments
  •         monitoring programs for wastewater discharges
  •         ecotoxicological and bioaccumulation studies
  •         general ecological assessments
