Project Leader Tracy Hill traveled to Omaha, Nebraska, December 23, to attend the Paddlefish Conservation and Management Symposium held in conjunction with the 67th annual meeting of the Midwest Fish and Wildlife Conference.

The symposium’s purpose was to update Mississippi River Basin biologists and managers on the current status and trends of paddlefish populations. 

Scientists throughout the country provided new information which has been collected since 1983, when the first paddlefish symposium occurred.  Dr. Hill gave a presentation during the symposium titled “Summary of the National Paddlefish Stock Assessment Project 1995-2004”. 

The presentation highlighted efforts of the Columbia FRO to manage the MICRA national paddlefish stock assessment database.  Approximately 100 individuals from state, federal, university and nongovernmental organizations participated in the symposium.
