Hello, I’m Mike Wood and I’m a professional fisheries biologist. I specialize in the management of freshwater systems and I’ve worked with everything from small backyard ponds to large multi-purpose impoundments. Before I retired as Director of Fisheries for Louisiana, I was responsible for fisheries management in all inland waters of the state. Over the years, I found that for every one of those waterbodies, there are decisions to be made that can either help or harm a fish population. If you have a waterbody, you’re faced with management decisions too. I’m available as a private consultant to help you make smart decisions and avoid costly mistakes.
That’s what Mike Wood Services is all about. I work on your behalf to make your waterbody the best it can be. I work closely with owners and provide an educated sounding board for ideas and questions. I make it my business to understand all the different factors that influence your waterbody. If you’re not satisfied with your waterbody now, I can get you back on track. I can also provide an unbiased review of reports and recommendations that you may have received from other consultants. I can help you understand which services are necessary and which ones are optional. I can help you manage toward a better, healthier waterbody and save you time, money, and headaches in the process.
My product is simply experienced advice. I work directly with property owners as a personal biological adviser. With me in your corner, you don’t need to rely solely on recommendations from someone who also just happens to sell those products and services. I serve as your council for everything related to your waterbody. I’m available for questions or concerns at your convenience and I visit client waterbodies on a routine basis to spot potential problems before they turn into real problems.
So if you need an experienced biologist in your corner to help you make the right management decisions, I can help.
