Being not a native speaker, I tend to get confused in articles. I was wondering if I need to use any article before "kind assistance" in my example sentence.


See example:

Notothenia angustata was caught with a line and hook off-shore from the coast of Dunedin, New Zealand, with kind assistance from Portobello Marine Laboratory, Por- tobello, Dunedin.

An article is not needed, but it would also be permissible to use '...with the kind assistance...'.
