4. Normally pigmented and lightly pigmented paddlefish juveniles from artificial propagation at Kentucky State University; broodstock from the Ohio River. ) opercula are often associated with oval to circular openings, which have been variously described as either sensory pits or as being secretory in nature. The lateral line is contin­ uous from the head to the caudal fin; individual lateral‐line pores have short branches ventrally. The cephalic lateralis is more complex and includes the sensory pits related to ampullae of Lorenzini.

Whereas, the majority of evaluations for exotic introductions dwell on the negatives (Pimentel et al. 2000; Kolar & Lodge 2002), in actuality, relatively few non‐native trans­ plants have resulted in major ecological impacts, and many have had great societal bene­ fits (Gozlan 2008). The culture of paddlefish outside its native range will be more thoroughly discussed in Chapter 5. 5 Gene Pool The chromosome number for paddlefish and sturgeons is large. The diploid number for paddlefish is 120 and is considered to be tetraploid; each nucleus has four active nucleoli (Dingerkus & Howell 1976).

The diploid number for paddlefish is 120 and is considered to be tetraploid; each nucleus has four active nucleoli (Dingerkus & Howell 1976). 1). Despite the wide geographic range of paddlefish, which extends from the uppermost regions of the Missouri, Tennessee, Ohio, and middle Arkansas and Red Rivers, and throughout the length of the Mississippi River to the Gulf coast, little evidence exists for much genetic divergence, except for some in various isolated populations. Paddlefish are a highly vagile species and when the rivers of North America were free flowing, popula­ tions in these systems were able to intermingle.
