Detailed Description

Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey conducted a dye-trace assessment on May 5, 2021 along the Missouri River near Huntsdale, Missouri. The assessment helped scientists understand how larvae from the critically endangered pallid sturgeon drift downstream after hatching and how they find supportive habitat in the complex Missouri River.
