Jason Carroll graduated From Humboldt State University in 2018 with a degree in Marine Biology and a minor in Scientific Diving. Having gotten his AAUS scientific diving certification he joined numerous projects as a scuba diver. He volunteered for Reef check CA doing numerous abundancy surveys as well as abalone surveys in the Mendocino area. After this experience he worked for a year on a Dive team through HSU collecting data comparing species and abundance between MPA (Marine protected areas) and Non-MPA sites. He then expanded towards freshwater habitats as well doing fish surveys in rapids along the feather river. On that same project he learned elecro-fishing sampling techniques.
He then worked as a marine mammal trainer for about a year and a half working with Dolphins primarily but assisting in the care and training of other animals as well including otters, walrus, sloths, seals, sea lions and numerous bird species. He returned to Oceanic conservation work in 2022, joining the MTS team and expanding his skill set as a diver and his survey techniques.
