Mr. Jared Porter

Jared Porter.


I earned a bachelor’s degree from Clemson University in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology, graduating in May 2011. My fisheries experience as an undergraduate included working on reintroduction of turquoise darters into Piedmont streams. I also spent 3 months as a Student Conservation Intern in Shenandoah National Park, assessing stream health and assisting in the park’s fish sampling program. For two years I worked with channel catfish and tilapia as an employee at the Clemson University Aquaculture Center. My research interests include fisheries conservation in lotic systems, and the conservation of endangered and threatened freshwater fish in the United States. Currently, my thesis includes the assessment of the effects that hydrologic conditions have on age and growth of pallid and shovelnose sturgeon. After graduate school, I intend to work as a fisheries biologist in the Southeastern United States.
