I'm rather fond of the paddle fish too, all those primitive fish light my
fire. Something can be said for the paddle fish being unique to the USA too. I
know there is one of China but it really not much like the one we have here. Not
even close really, I was amazed at how different they were. I think they are
probably not even similar enough to be called related. The Chinese one looks
like a sturgeon with a long nose, not even close to our filter feeder.
