Midwest Region, April 4, 2007
Print Friendly Version

Project Leader Tracy Hill and Branch Chief for Missouri River Studies Wyatt Doyle traveled to St. Joseph, Missouri, on March 20 to attend a stocking subcommittee meeting. 

The purpose of the meeting was for the group to determine pallid sturgeon stocking numbers for the lower Missouri River and to work out logistic concerns for the state and federal hatcheries that are rearing the pallid sturgeon.

In addition, there was discussion as to whether the hatcheries should hold pallid sturgeon that were within a year of stocking when captured from the wild, the appropriate number of fish that should be stocked per family group produced and what stocking sites should be utilized for stocking hatchery produced pallid. 

The meeting was a tremendous success and the hatchery managers went away from the meeting equipped to make decision for future broodstock production.
