Jesse joined the Cramer Fish Sciences team in January of 1999 where he began his career
by learning a multitude of sampling techniques including rotary screw trapping, fyke netting,
beach seining, electrofishing and surgical tag implementation. He earned his bachelors degree
in Ecology and Systematic Biology from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo in 2003. Jesse has a strong
background in fisheries and anadromous salmonid biology, and over 15 years of experience conducting
juvenile and adult salmonid population monitoring. He currently manages our rotary screw trap and
resistance board weir
projects, and is a project lead for our habitat restoration projects in the Central Valley. Jesse
managed the Stanislaus River weir project from 2003-2007, and has over 11 years of experience
managing the design, construction, delivery, installation and training of each of our weir projects.
Most recently, Jesse led successful weir projects in both Norway (River Etne) and Canada (Duffins Creek).
Responsibilities: Jesse works closely
with senior Cramer Fish Sciences staff in California to analyze complex fishery
problems and to prepare scientific reports and presentations.
Projects/Services: Jesse Anderson's extensive knowledge
of field research techniques greatly enhances the Cramer Fish Sciences
team's ability to produce reliable and informative research results for clients.
Background: He began his fisheries career at Cramer Fish Sciences
in 1999 while still a senior in high school. His first tasks were learning multiple
field sampling techniques, such as rotary screw trapping, fyke netting, seining,
electro-fishing, and photonic marking.
At the same time, Jesse deepened his hands-on knowledge through
education by earning a degree in ecology and systematic biology (with concentrations
in both fisheries and marine biology) from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo.
Personal: When not at work, Jesse spends his personal time enjoying his many
hobbies, including fishing, hunting, camping, hiking, kayaking,
barbequing, and cooking. "I also am an aquarist and enjoy raising African
peacock cichlids. I am also a sports fan and love the Sacramento Kings and San
Luckily for him he's not alone in these pursuits. "I
get to enjoy all of these activities with my lovely wife who likes them just as
much as I do."
