Federal recovery plan for endangered fish updated

ST. LOUIS _ The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has released an updated
recovery plan for an endangered fish species found in the Missouri and
Mississippi rivers.
The pallid sturgeon is a bottom-feeding fish that traces its origins to the
dinosaur era. It's been listed as a federal endangered species since 1990.
The federal agency first developed a plan to bolster the pallid sturgeon
population two decades ago. An updated plan released on Tuesday calls for
further conservation efforts and habitat restoration.
