Alex Rosburg



Originally from the town of Estherville, Iowa, near the Iowa Great Lakes, Alex grew up on some of the best fishing the state of Iowa has to offer. He completed his B.S. in Wildlife and Fisheries Science at SDSU in December 2013. Over the span of his undergraduate career, Alex worked for the Iowa DNR's Aquatic Invasive Species Unit, the South Dakota GF&P, and as a fisheries research technician for multiple graduate students at SDSU. Alex is now working on his master's degree studying growth potential and genetic diversity of yellow perch in South Dakota with Dr. Brian Blackwell and Dr. Steven Chipps.. Studying growth potential and genetic diversity of yellow perch in South Dakota.
