Aquatic Ecotoxicology Laboratory & Environmental Consulting Group Joins EcoAnalysts

We are pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2017 an aquatic ecotoxicology laboratory and staff in Port Gamble, Washington has joined EcoAnalysts, Inc. (Moscow, Idaho). The scientists were formerly part of Ramboll Environ (Arlington, Virginia). This partnership augments EcoAnalysts’ capabilities, and offers clients a distinct combination of aquatic testing laboratory services, field investigation services, ecological risk assessment, and consulting services. The Port Gamble laboratory and ecotoxicology experts have a successful history of addressing technical, regulatory and legal challenges facing clients in the port and commercial maritime, oil and gas, fisheries, mining and legal sectors.

The combination of ecotoxicology and ecological risk assessment is highly complementary to EcoAnalysts’ service offering. By combining Port Gamble with EcoAnalysts, we have created a comprehensive source for aquatic/terrestrial ecology and laboratory services that is unique in North America.

“We are excited to bring the Port Gamble scientists onto the EcoAnalysts team. They are experts in their field and a terrific group of people,” says Gary Lester, President and CEO of EcoAnalysts. “Our combined service offering is unparalleled in our industry and further establishes us as a leading provider of marine, freshwater and terrestrial laboratory and ecological services. Adding Port Gamble’s services helps us diversify our clients, services and geography, which further strengthens our organization.”

“This new partnership with EcoAnalysts significantly enhances our ability to respond to our clients’ environmental issues,” says Meg Pinza, Director of Port Gamble Operations. “We also look forward to a continued close association with our former colleagues at Ramboll Environ to provide a broad range of services to our clients.”
