Morgan & Eklund's Legacy

John Morgan began his Florida career in 1978 at one of the first coastal engineering firms in Florida, heading the hydrographic survey arm of the company. In 1985, John Morgan, with Ron Eklund and David Coggin, established their own firm, Morgan & Eklund. Inc (M&E) to service the marine industry with the most reliable and quality surveying and engineering capabilities.

In 2017, M&E was acquired by Continental Shelf Associates (CSA), where John Morgan continued to lead survey services, while expanding the business to include geophysical, oceanographic and metocean survey services.  Over the many years of his career, John worked for a broad range of clients including the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, coastal engineering firms, water management districts, and dredging contractors in support of beach projects in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, Brevard, Volusia, St. Johns, Okaloosa, Collier, Sarasota and Lee counties.

John Morgan, President of Morgan & Eklund and recognized and admired as a hydrographic surveying expert, passed away unexpectedly on the morning of February 11, 2020. His legacy lives on and all of the employees here at Morgan & Eklund are proud to continue on his vision.
