Missouri River, MT and ND

Missouri River, MT and ND — Freshwater Map has collected and analyzed data sets on the Missouri River between Ft. Peck, Montana and Williston, North Dakota to help wildlife managers and dam operators restore populations of pallid sturgeon.  This ancient species of sturgeon has not successfully reproduced in the wild in over 40 years.  Detailed mapping and analysis of habitat will enable scientists to better understand the reasons for the lack of recruitment and help design operational and habitat mitigation strategies to enable the species to thrive.
