Cameron’s experience includes project data collection, evaluation, and analysis associated with drift-feeding behavior in Chinook salmon, Arctic grayling, and Dolly Varden trout in Alaska. His experience includes video examination of fish feeding behavior using VidSync software to measure feeding behavior, taking inventory of incoming samples, splitting samples into subsamples for random selection, separating bugs from debris, identification of bugs for processing samples, closing the lab at the end of the day, documenting daily tasks, entering data into Excel spreadsheets.
Cam also developed detailed habitat restoration plans for Black Crappie in Lake Chapman, Sandy Creek Park, In Athens-Clarke County, GA. His role was to assess the present community structure of fish and use this information to develop alternatives as part of a restoration plan to increase the size and numbers of black crappie in Lake Chapman.
