Density of Pallid Sturgeon and Food Web Dynamics in the Missouri River


January 2013 - December 2017


Our goal is to provide inferences regarding pallid sturgeon Scaphirhynchus albus carrying
capacity, using two complementary methods (vital rates and production), in the Missouri River and Yellowstone
River (i.e., RPMA 2). This information will be useful in guiding an adaptive conservation propagation program.
