The San Antonio River Authority and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released yellow sandshell freshwater mussels raised by Inks Dam National Fish Hatchery into the Mission Reach of the San Antonio River just south of downtown San Antonio. This historic event marked the first time hatchery-produced freshwater mussels have ever been reintroduced into the wild in Texas.
