DENVER--The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) is announcing the availability of the Pallid Sturgeon Revised Recovery Plan (Plan). The Pallid Sturgeon (Scaphirhynchus albus) is a bottom-feeding fish considered to be a relic of the dinosaur era, which historically occupied the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers in Montana downstream to the Missouri-Mississippi confluence and the Mississippi River possibly from near Keokuk, Iowa, downstream to New Orleans, Louisiana. The species is listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (Act).
