Dr. Frank Rohwer

  • Dr. Frank Rohwer - President

    Dr. Frank Rohwer has been working with Delta Waterfowl since 1976. After 2 summers of work as a field technician, Rohwer got even more involved with Delta when he got funding as a graduate student, doing both his Masters research and his doctoral research work at Delta’s famed Minnedosa Field Station in Southwestern Manitoba.

    After a short hiatus in the late 1980s, Rohwer returned to Delta as the Scientific Director in 1991, while simultaneously serving as a wildlife faculty at Louisiana State University. Rohwer served as the head scientist at Delta for over a two decade span.

    Recognizing his strong scientific research background and passion for hunting since he was a child, Delta Waterfowl’s Board of Directors named him President in October 2012. Dr. Rohwer strongly believes that Delta can best serve the needs of waterfowl hunters, which is our clientele, by working to promote effective and efficient management for duck production and by being an advocate for hunters. Delta continues to embrace our scientific background and will always fund research that focuses on waterfowl and waterfowl management, but we are expanding our role to undertake far more active management to serve the needs of ducks and their chief advocates - waterfowl hunters.
