Using the results of 15 years of previous graduate student research projects and the financial support of a host of state and federal agencies, the first successful captive propagation of an endangered mussel species, the tan riffleshell (Epioblasma florentina walkeri), occurred in summer 1997 in the Hiwassee River, Tennessee.
From 1998 through 2001, nearly 260,000 juvenile mussels of eight endangered species and one of special concern were propagated and released to two major river systems (Clinch/ Powell and Hiwassee River systems) to augment declining mussel populations.
