Fishery biologist Jennifer Johnson traveled to St. Joseph, MO, September 14, to attend the quarterly meeting of the Missouri River Recovery Agency Coordination Team. The meetings are intended to brief state and federal agencies on the progress of this program.


Under the Missouri River Fish and Wildlife Mitigation Project, a variety of aquatic and terrestrial habitats acquired by the Army Corps have been restored and developed in the Missouri River and its floodplain to enhance habitats for fish and wildlife.


Monitoring will enable the coordination team to determine whether the mitigation sites are performing as expected.  Columbia FRO continues to partner with state agencies to conserve and increase native fish populations in the Missouri River and to identify and take appropriate actions that will help achieve desired resource goals and outcomes.
