Paddlefish In The Watershed

By Tricia Bergstue - CWC conservationist (family@post-journal.com)

Last summer, a friend of mine told me about an interesting experience she'd had. While canoeing on Conewango Creek, she spotted a strange fish that appeared to be swimming like a shark. Upon closer inspection, she saw that the fish had a very long snout and realized it was a paddlefish. Downstream, she came across two dozen more paddlefish, none of which seemed particularly afraid of the boat. Her story piqued my interest, and I did a little research to find out more.
