More than 20 years after joining the endangered species list, the pallid sturgeon is treading water. Slicing through farm country, the Missouri River – home to a threatened pallid sturgeon population – is a piece of the vibrant farm economy. Officials are struggling to balance efforts to preserve the species without harming agriculture. This story was reported by Harvest Public Media.
