Montana Fishery Project

Density of Pallid Sturgeon and Food Web Dynamics in the Missouri River

January 2013 - December 2017


Participating Agencies

  • Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks

Our goal is to provide inferences regarding pallid sturgeon Scaphirhynchus albus carrying capacity, using two complementary methods (vital rates and production), in the Missouri River and Yellowstone River (i.e., RPMA 2). This information will be useful in guiding an adaptive conservation propagation program.
