frc Team

frc environmental was founded in 1984 (as Fisheries Research Consultants) by Dr John Thorogood. Carol Conacher joined the Practice as a Principal in 1996. Both John and Carol maintain a ‘hands-on’ involvement with projects undertaken by the practice.

frc environmental‘s scientists are recognised experts in their field, and together make us the consultancy of choice when it comes to issues related to coastal, riverine and riparian ecosystems.┬áTheir outstanding academic qualifications, professionalism and commitment to their work, make us the envy of our competitors. Critically, each ecologist and environmental scientist at frc environmental knows good science isn’t enough: we need to communicate the significance of results to our clients.

Our business development team and administrative team share the commitment and enthusiasm of our scientists and appreciate their performance is vital to our ability to exceed client expectations.

Our investment in administrative and project management systems enable our scientists to work efficiently to deliver your project on time and on budget.
