“TBA – Georgia DNR” –

Hunter Roop

 Bio: Fishing has always been a part of my life. I grew up in the North Georgia area and often fished its local lakes, reservoirs, and streams. Eventually I realized that if I could make this hobby a job, I’d have a real shot at a satisfying career. I attended the University of Georgia pursuing an education in fisheries management, and I eventually graduated with a Master of Science degree in 2015. 

I have a variety of professional experience in the public and private sectors, which has helped me to listen and value the input of stakeholders to guide the optimal management of resources. I enjoy working and collaborating on a variety of fisheries projects that aim to benefit the fishing experiences of Georgia’s anglers.
 Turns out, we introduced AFFC to Hunter in the newsletter last year with this Chattahoochee Brown from DNR’s sampling. Looking forward to Hunter joining us next week and introducing himself as our local DNR Lanier and Chattahoochee biologist.
