About Us

Providing phytoplankton expertise to aid scientific authorities worldwide in making sound ecological decisions.
Phytoplankton taxonomic and ecological analysis from the arctic to the tropics

Algal Taxonomy and Ecology incorporated (AT&E Inc) was established in 1998 and is headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. We continue to work with leading scientific authorities in countries worldwide to assist them with phytoplankton expertise which aids in making sound ecological evaluations and decisions.

The principal researcher at AT&E has over 40 years experience in algal taxonomy and was previously the Primary Algal Taxonomist at the Freshwater Institute, Department of Fisheries and Oceans (Central and Arctic Region), Winnipeg, Canada. The company is well connected to the Canadian and Global taxonomic and limnological community.

AT&E has experience in sediment microfossil analysis specializing in algal microfossils using a method which includes both non siliceous and siliceous microfossils. AT&E also has experience in toxic algal species and suspected toxic samples are subcontracted out.
