Fishery biologist, Jennifer Johnson left the Columbia FRO after four years of service.  She accepted a permanent Fish Biologist position with the Arizona Fishery Resources Office in Whiteriver, Arizona effective May 14th


Johnson will provide fishery management assistance to various tribes, state, and other federal agencies in Arizona.  Her primary responsibilities will include design and implementation of field studies to evaluate habitat use and ecological requirements of listed and other native fish species in Arizona.


Field studies will be primarily located within the Gila, Salt, Verde, and Little Colorado River watersheds.

Johnson started her federal career with the Columbia FRO in May of 2003 as a STEP student. Johnson received her bachelor’s degree in Fisheries and Wildlife in 2004 from the University of Missouri and then enrolled in the Fisheries and Wildlife graduate program at the University in August 2004.


She is currently finishing her thesis on reproductive development of Macrhybopsis chubs in relation to environmental variables in the lower Missouri River.  During her time at the Columbia FRO she assisted with pallid sturgeon monitoring, mitigation, and habitat assessment and monitoring projects.

Johnson enjoyed her time at the Columbia FRO and looks forward to applying the knowledge and skills she gained during her time there in her new position.
