The Columbia FRO (CMFRO) welcomed Fishery Biological Technician Derek Eisenbrei to the staff on May 15, 2006.  Derek comes to Columbia with a BS degree in Oceanography/Meteorology he earned from SUNY Maritime College.  While in college, Derek received a 3-year Navy ROTC scholarship, which led to his commissioning as a naval officer upon graduation.  His immediate activities before joining CMFRO included continuing his education at Walsh University in North Canton, OH  in pursuit of a licensure in education of Adolescent to Young Adults and working as a head high school swim team coach.  In addition to these endeavors, Derek has experience writing and editing for Navy publications and providing life skills and tutoring for youth K-12.

Derek is looking forward to working on the Missouri river in support of Pallid Sturgeon recovery and the success of the Columbia FRO.
