Matt Blommel

Fisheries Biologist

Matt Blommel joined the EnviroScience team in February 2017, bringing with him a specialized expertise in fisheries biology that has significantly advanced our environmental projects. Based out of Virginia, Matt is particularly adept at conducting rigorous electrofishing surveys across diverse aquatic environments, including tidal rivers and freshwater reservoirs.

His comprehensive skill set extends beyond electrofishing; Matt is proficient in stream surveys, water quality analysis, and the collection of fish tissue, water, and sediment samples. His technical abilities are further demonstrated through his experience with gill and trap netting surveys and participation in 316(b) entrainment sampling at power stations, a critical component of our ecological assessments.

Matt holds a B.S. in Aquaculture, Fisheries, and Wildlife Biology, complemented by a minor in Environmental Science and Policy from Clemson University. His academic background and hands-on experience make him a cornerstone of our ecological research efforts, helping to guide environmental policy and conservation strategies with precision and insight.

Few environmental firms in the country retain EnviroScience’s degree of scientific know-how, talent, and capability under one roof. The diverse backgrounds of our biologists, environmental engineers, scientists, and divers enable us to provide comprehensive in-house services and an integrated approach to solving environmental challenges—saving clients time, reducing costs, and ensuring high-quality results.

Our client guarantee is to provide “Excellence in Any Environment,” meaning no matter what we do, we will deliver on our Core Values of respect, client advocacy, quality work, accountability, teamwork, and safety. EnviroScience was created with the concept that we could solve complex problems by empowering great people. This concept still holds true today as our scientists explore the latest environmental legislation and regulations and incorporate the most up-to-date technology to gather and report data.

EnviroScience expertise includes but is not limited to aquatic surveys (including macroinvertebrate surveys and biological assessments); ecological restoration; ecological services (including impact assessments, invasive species control, and water quality monitoring);  emergency response; engineering and compliance services; endangered mussel surveys; laboratory and analysis; stormwater management; threatened and endangered species; and wetlands and streams (including delineation and mitigation). Further, EnviroScience is one of the few biological firms in the country that is a general member of the Association of Diving Contractors International (ADCI) and offers full-service commercial diving services.
