Inspecting a semi-submersible rig prior to transport to New Zealand

Cawthron's Biosecurity team works alongside clients to help them navigate through marine biosecurity legislation for New Zealand and overseas locations. This has involved the development of marine biosecurity management plans, rig and vessel inspections for marine pests, as well as advice on managing biofouling accumulation on offshore infrastructure.

In addition to oil and gas work, the team provides expertise and consulting services for all marine biosecurity issues. This includes managing non-indigenous pests and diseases, and assisting with biosecurity regulatory compliance and risk mitigation.
