Increasing habitat and improving biodiversity whilst providing a refuge for a wide variety of animals. Aquascience Ltd has a proven track record of habitat creation creating long lasting improvements for ecology & biodiversity. Using plants from our nursery and innovative methods we can increase marginal or island habitats depending on the situation.

Severe `blue green` algae problems on this water in Hampshire required a array of water improvement schemes including this Phragmites bed. Other improvements included marginal planting and floating island installations.

Aquascience were contracted by a local council to plant an amenity pond in and urban environment. The planting scheme photographed here is following one season’s growth. Establishment of such schemes are dependant on appropriate soil and plant selection, together with the understanding of good habitat parameters.

The floating islands here are two established 8 meter rafts within an established commercial fishery. They provide both refuge from bird predation and removal of excessive nutrients from the water body, improving water quality and ulimatly improving fish health.

Our understanding of good water quality lead us to be challenged to provide a local amenity water with numerous options to reduce algal blooms, ensuring good fish populations and bi-diversity continue to prevail.
