Chinese Paddlefish






One of the largest freshwater fish, it is said that the Chinese Paddlefish can grow to 23 feet and weigh 1,100 pounds, but little research on a maximum size can be conducted today due to the species' scarcity. Due to overfishing, the Chinese Paddlefish is endangered now and quite possibly extinct.

This fish looks very sleek in the water.

It's too bad this fish might be extinct! It's a beautiful long lean fish that looks like it could slither through the water.

I hate people... Making the most beautiful and unique creatures endangered and extinct... It's a shame really... I wish I could fix it all like that...

The fish are great, but I miss the birds, the creatures that fly above us, make shelter out of scraps and bring new life into the world only to be set free.

What is that saying: If you let it go it will return.
