Fox has 15 years of experience, primarily in aquatics-related projects, including survey design, transect layouts, map design, data collection and analysis, field investigations, Section 7 consultations, regulatory agency coordination, preparation of biological assessment documents, and coordinating and conducting habitat assessments and surveys for mussels, fish, and aquatic salamanders.

“We’re very excited to welcome Tom to our team, as he is only one of a few individuals permitted in North Carolina to conduct surveys for all listed species of freshwater mussels, fish, crayfish, snails, and aquatic salamanders,” says Dewberry Associate and Senior Planner Beth Smyre, PE.
