Time: Dinner @ 6PM, Presenter at 7PM

Cost :$20 per person. Includes Gourmet Pizza, all you an eat. (Cash Bar).

*** Reservations Required via PM to me. Pay at Door. ***

Limited Seats Available

Huge Raffle with over $1000 of prizes. It's a fun, light hearted event, unofficially organized through CTFisherman.com.



TOPIC: Dr.Mitch Roffer -Effects of the Ocean Environment on the distribution, movements
and catchability of tuna, marlin, mahi, kingfish and sharks.



Guys: I've tried for the last couple of years, and finally succedded at getting a fantastic speaker for our April 9th Offshore Night.

If you've fished Offshore and used the "Roffs" report, you know what value they are to locating Pelagic species. He does not just use a snap shot in time of the water conditions, but analyzes the water over a long period of time and establishes patterns and can extrapolate water, bait and Pelagic species movement.

I've attended one of his seminars in the past and was fascinated by his ability to apply modern scientific analysis to Offshore Fishing. He does this along the entire East coast, for both Recreational and Commercial Fisherman.














ROFFS™

ROFFER'S OCEAN FISHING FORECASTING SERVICE, INC.

60 Westover Drive, West Melbourne, Fl 32904-5126
321.723.5759//www.roffs.com


Dr. Mitchell A. Roffer is President and founder (1986) of Roffer's Ocean Fishing Forecasting Service,
Inc. (ROFFS™ -www.roffs.com) Melbourne, Florida that provides oceanographic consulting services
worldwide. He received his doctorate at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and
Atmospheric Science in Biological Oceanography with an emphasis on Fisheries Oceanography.

ROFFS™ fishing products are designed to provide real-time, value-added, detailed information on
ocean currents and fish catchability to help anglers locate concentrations of feeding fish. These “road
maps to the fish” are derived from Earth orbiting satellite data which are integrated with information
on the ecology of fish. ROFFS™ integrates infrared, ocean color_chlorophyll, and altimeter satellite
data, as well as, HF radar, current meter, and meteorological data to produce detailed oceanographic
analyses daily.

While ROFFS™ is well known for providing fisheries oceanographic services, it has been providing
other oceanographic services to the oil and gas industry, academic institutions and environmental
organizations for twenty years. Roffer is also involved in fisheries oceanographic research with
NASA and NOAA, as well as, various regional oceanographic observing associations.

Dr. Roffer has been a member of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA)
Ecological Modeling and Forecasting Research Team for the last six years and he also participates
on the Ocean Color Science Research Team as well. As Principal Investigator, he was recently
selected for funding for a three year NASA Earth Science research project, “Improving The NOAA
NMFS and ICCAT Atlantic Bluefin Tuna Fisheries Management Decision Support System.” He will be
working with other scientists from NASA, NOAA (National Marine Fisheries Service), University of
South Florida and University of Massachusetts on this important project.

Previously he was Principal Investigator of another three year NASA funded project, "Study Of Ocean
Environmental Parameters To Forecast The Effects Of Climate Variability On Pelagic Fish
Resources." This project studied the effect of the Gulf Stream and coastal ocean circulation on the
catchability of mahi and king mackerel off Charleston, South Carolina and Tampa, Florida.

Dr. Roffer has been an active participant working towards the establishment of the Southeast Region
Coastal Ocean Observing System (SECOORA), as well as, the Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean
Observing System (GCOOS) and Florida COOS. He was elected to the Board of Directors and
Executive Committee with SECOORA and serves on the Products and Services Committee with
GCOOS. Roffer is an Adjunct Faculty at the Florida Institute of Oceanography, Department of Marine
and Environmental Systems.

He will be presenting a seminar “Effects of the ocean environment on the distribution, movements
and catchability of tuna, marlin, mahi, kingfish and sharks” which will be scientific talk and not a
commercial on ROFFS™. The seminar will be followed by an extended question and answer period.
