Dr. Mark Rogers, Unit Leader, Tennessee Cooperative Fishery Research Unit

I spent six years as a fisheries research biologist at the USGS Great Lakes Science Center working on Lakes Michigan, Superior, and Erie after earning my PhD at the University of Florida. I started as the Unit Leader for the Tennessee Cooperative Fishery Research Unit in December 2015.
