NANFA-- Chinese paddle fish
Tue, 8 Jun 2004 18:59:06 EDT

Earlier in the year there was thread about the Chinese paddle fish. I have
been talking to someone from China about this species and I found out they are
not filter feeders like our paddle fish, they are predators, and they spend
some time in the ocean. I'm betting the new dam over the Yangtze River will be
the last nail in the coffin of this species. I also found out that China is
importing our paddle fish to be stocked to take the place of the Yangtze paddle
fish. disturbing to think of the switch especially since these two fish are not
really much alike.
