Neosho National Fish Hatchery was established in 1888 and is the oldest continuously operational federal fish hatchery raising fish today. Their top billing: raising rainbow trout that are released in Lake Taneycomo in Branson, Missouri. The hatchery also raises the federally endangered pallid sturgeon, Topeka shiner, and they even have Neosho muckets (a magical mussel) for the first time in their history! Speaking of mussels, we’re not trying to brag (yes, we are) but Neosho is rocking two awesome mussel experts and just had a boost in production this year, raising three different species of mussels!
