What's in a name?

Mudskippers are air-breathing amphibious fish, who use their adapted pectoral fins to move on land; they flourish in different environments with a clear view both above and below the water. Together, these attributes mean that mudskippers have significant advantages over their fully-aquatic competitors

Like our namesake, Mudskipper® thrives in multiple diverse environments. We continually adapt to meet the changing needs of our clients, exploring new approaches and testing new waters
