Martin asks:
>>>So, ahem, where do you stand on the quest for a national fish? Do I hear
a vote
for a ganoid?<<<

I'd happily support most of the excellent choices suggested, but lean toward
the ganoids, and of those fishes, favor the bowfin. Its fine qualities are
obvious and it represents a distinctive taxon that is almost restricted to
the United States.
