Jamieson is passionate about incorporating new technologies into holistic stock assessment programs. He has expertise in research and stock assessment projects that utilize Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) and acoustic tag technologies. Jamieson has implemented tag-based stock assessment programs in Comox and Meziadin lakes and is currently assessing the impacts of log booms on Chinook survival in Cowichan Bay; conducted life history investigations by combining PIT tag technology and otolith microchemistry. He has completed multiple projects utilizing these methods on cutthroat trout, steelhead, and Chinook salmon.  

Jamieson is a co-manager of the multi-year BCSRIF funded Bottlenecks to Marine Survival Program; he was one of the primary project developers and writers for the proposal, a BCCF, PSF and University of Victoria collaboration.
