Dr. Marvin Rosenau has over 35-years of experience working in freshwater fisheries in the province of British Columbia and overseas. Much of his work has focused on stream and lake habitat-protection and restoration, including issues relating to gravel-removal from streams, lake fertilization and flow-augmentation for fluvial (stream) fishes. Dr. Rosenau worked extensively on lower Fraser River white sturgeon during the 1990s as a BC fisheries program biologist and as a Director and member of the Science Committee with the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society. He has continued on with work on lower Fraser and Nechako river white sturgeon, including teaching a fisheries course at BCIT’s Fish Wildlife and Recreation Program, and as an expert witness in a Federal Supreme Court action on the latter stream. Other fish species that Dr. Rosenau has worked on over the years include kokanee, Salish suckers, coho and Chinook salmon, steelhead and non-salmonid fishes.
