Brian  Roth
  • Associate Professor
  • Fisheries and Wildlife



I am a fish ecologist and joined the faculty in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at MSUin July 2008. Teaching is the largest component of my assignment, and I place a heavy emphasis in my courses on understanding fish in the context of the ecosystem, which echoes my research interests. I strive for outreach that engages others to appreciate the challenges of learning about fish in terms of the ecosystem that surrounds them. These parallels across my assignment brings unity to my program, and allows a productive contribution to the Land Grant Philosophy at MSU.
