'Dr. Trout' battles the planet's most dangerous diseases

In his day job, Marshall Bloom is the associate director for scientific management at the Rocky Mountain Laboratories.

Away from the lab, he's an avid fly fisherman and conservationist; his license plate says DRTROUT. Now 67, he's spent more than two decades as a voluntary leader of Trout Unlimited, working locally and nationally, lobbying the Montana Legislature, and organizing fund-raisers and so on. Bloom's conservation efforts -- securing water for fish and coping with fish-killing whirling disease -- have been "amazing" and had "an enormous impact on fish habitat" in the state, according to a former director of Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
