Services

Pisces can help when you:

  • run out of time
  • need experienced, efficient help
  • are entering a new collaborative sector (Oceans people are our people…and we also work really well with data managers and scientists)
  • need long term, part time project supervision

Pisces is available to help at all stages of your ocean project, or just when you need a little help at a particular stage.
