The Missouri River Recovery Program (also known as MRRP) mission is to research, plan and then implement actions to accomplish Missouri River ecosystem recovery goals in coordination and collaboration with Army Corps' partners and other River stakeholders. According to an Army Corps MRRP overview, those recovery goals include:
- Providing habitat for native fish and wildlife by restoring natural features and functions.
- Raising pallid sturgeon in hatcheries and stocking them in the River.
- Implementing a more natural flow regimen to benefit native fish and wildlife while seeking balance with social, economic and cultural resources.
- Ensuring that management decisions are based on the best available science.
- Establishing collaborative stakeholder processes and educational opportunities to provide insight and recommendations on recovery activities.
