DR. MITCHELL A. ROFFER

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

ROFFS™ fishing products are designed to provide real-time, value-added, detailed information on ocean currents and fish catch-ability.  Such information dramatically enhances the odds in successfully locating and dialing in on areas where game fish concentrations are most likely. These “road maps to the fish” are derived from Earth orbiting satellite data, which is then 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 these detailed oceanographic analyses on a daily basis.
