Rodger Rottmann​

Rodger Rottmann died April 3, 1994. Those of us who knew Rodger will remember him, not only for his accomplishments in fisheries science, but for the example he set in accepting his long term fatal illness. Rodger conducted and published extensive research in areas ranging from white bass production to ornamental fish production. Those of us in aquatic plant management will remember him best for his pioneering work in all aspects of grass carp production, use, and ecological affects, on which he published over 20 scientific and technical papers. His latest accomplishment was the videotape, “Hormone Induced Spawning of Grass Carp.”
