PASADENA, California – Tetra Tech (NASDAQ: TTEK) has acquired coastal and oceanographic consulting firm Applied Science Consultoria Ltda. (ASA Brazil) based in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

With the acquisition, ASA Brazil has changed its name to Tetra Tech. The firm has about 50 employees and provides oceanic modeling and engineering services primarily to offshore oil and gas companies.
