Caption/Information: Rob Schmid, manager of TPWD’s A.E. Wood State Fish Hatchery, inspects some of the mussels that were held at the facility during a test run to be sure it provided suitable habitat. Mussels from TxDOT construction sites can be moved here and held until construction work is complete and it is safe to put the mussels back where they came from.
