The weekend of July 4th, over 1,000 barrels of crude oil leaked from a buried pipeline under the Yellowstone River in the Laurel, MT, area.
Years of research from Montana State University in Bozeman and Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks will help document any changes to might occur due to the spill.
MSU professor Al Zale, who is unit leader for the Montana Cooperative Fisheries Research Unit, said, “In the weeks and months ahead, we will be looking for any unusual changes in the river’s natural environment and any impacts on the species of fish would expect to find at this time of year.”
MSU biologists will be documenting GPS locations of sick turtles and fish or any fish kills. Areas of emphasis will include whirling disease and native fish species restoration, such as the pictured pallid sturgeon.
