ForensisGroup Marine Forensics Expert Witnesses work in the scientific study of incidents or accidents occurring as a result of or involving bodies of water including oceans, streams or rivers, lakes, or ponds.
These experts analyze forensic evidence used in cases that involve hunting or harming endangered marine animals protected by federal and state laws. Marine forensic scientists perform autopsies to determine if illegal fishing gear, pollutants, ship strikes, or other human activity was the cause of an animal’s death. They also analyze blood and tissue samples, and conduct DNA tests to investigate possible cases of poaching and illegal fishing. They use modern day naval architecture tools and techniques to understand what happened and where appropriate suggest preventative measures to avoid similar casualties in the future.
Some of our experts have worked at the NOAA Marine Forensics Unit, which is the only laboratory in the U.S. dedicated to the forensic analysis of marine species.
Some opine in litigation concerning laws that protect marine animals.
These experts are marine engineers, forensic marine biologists, and marine forensic technicians.
