Capsule Resume

Cameron Noble has spent much of his career working with the people and marine life of British Columbia’s Pacific Coast. For over a decade, Cameron worked as a naturalist, fishing guide, researcher and educator. Driven by a desire to better understand the social, environmental, and economic impacts of resource management decisions, he completed a Masters in Resource and Environmental Management (M.R.M.) at Simon Fraser University. His thesis research focused on estimating Conservation Unit (CU) specific abundances and harvest rates of Fraser River sockeye and also validated a computer simulation model of Fraser River sockeye migration and harvest.

Cameron joined LGL in 2012 as a Fisheries Biologist, supporting the Nisga’a Fisheries Program on the Nass River. His work also involves fish telemetry studies and stock assessment models for North Coast salmon stocks.

Cameron believes that cooperative management, objective and unbiased science, and – perhaps most importantly – local community support and engagement are keys to sustainable resource management. Through his work, he hopes to contribute to building thriving communities and healthy ecosystems along the Pacific Coast.
