The spoonbill catfish, or paddle fish, are one of the oldest fish species in the world. They can grow up to seven feet long and weigh up to 200 pounds. They live in fresh water and eat plankton.

Also known as paddlefish, a spoonbill fish is recognized for its large mouth and its elongated snout called a rostrum or bill. The bill comprises half the length of their body much like the long sword nose of a shark. But, these fish are in no way related to sharks even though their skeletons and fins do resemble such creatures.

The spoonbill catfish, also known as a paddle fish, is not really a catfish. They are plankton eaters that have been around for at least 300 million years, and as adults, may grow to seven feet long and up to 200 pounds. Once nearly extinct, they are making a comeback.
