Print Friendly Version

The Mississippi Interstate Cooperative Research Association (MICRA) met for their annual paddlefish/sturgeon subcommittee  meeting this month.  Project Leader Tracy Hill and I traveled to Nashville, Tennessee to participate in open discussions and learn about current issues affecting these fisheries. 


State biologists came from as far away as Montana to attend this two day meeting and talk about the status of paddlefish and sturgeon.  Over the course of the meeting, presentations were given to the group that dealt with topics ranging from paddlefish and sturgeon biology to law enforcement of commercial regulations in the Midwest.
