Communication is an important principle driving the outreach and education goals at Columbia FWCO.  Fish Biologist Clayton Ridenour put this principle into practice at the 2011 Missouri River Natural Resources Committee Conference in Nebraska City, NE. 

The MRNRC is the premier annual gathering of Missouri River Basin stakeholders, including scientists, politicians, natural resource managers, planning experts, private industry interest, and citizens.  This professional meeting is an excellent forum to discuss important issues relating to the Missouri River. 

Clayton gave two oral presentations to disseminate the Results of studies on pallid sturgeon that were recently completed by Columbia FWCO.  Each was focused to address survival and habitat quality during the early-life period of pallid sturgeon because it’s likely when they’re most vulnerable to mortality and probably represents the population bottleneck. 

Each presentation triggered productive discussion amongst the audience and has provided a baseline for guiding new pallid sturgeon research and monitoring on the Missouri River.  A pdf copy of each presentation, and the associated technical abstracts, can be downloaded at . 

Columbia FWCO expanded its Outreach mission to deliver their Science message to a large number of people by attending and presenting at the 2011 MRNRC Conference.
