The A.G.A. Group is the parent organisation under which a number of specialist divisions operate, Aquatic Consultancy, Bioengineering, Fishery Management, Lake and Pond Construction, these divisions allow for in-depth understanding of specific elements of the aquatic environment and provide expert knowledge in specific fields.
Also under the umbrella of the A.G.A Group is the Merton Hall Ponds site which is one of the largest aquatic plant nurseries in the UK so a variety of aquatic plant species can be easily sourced all year round.
Bioengineering has become the favoured method of achieving high standards of effective erosion control, water quality and habitat improvement where a sustainable environmental approach is important to the specific project in question.
The restoration and enhancement of the UK's canal network, its waterways and coastlines can be achieved in a more sensitive fashion using a combination of natural and living materials alongside more accepted 'hard' methods. In many cases 'hard' solutions can be completely replaced by a bioengineered 'soft' methods and where this is not possible bioengineering techniques can be used to 'green-up' and soften the 'hard' engineered option.
