Kansas City, Mo. – A paddlefish caught in the Missouri River in late March bore a tag indicating a remarkable journey. The fish traveled from Moon Lake in Mississippi, first venturing into canals and rivers in a long swim southward in that state to the Mississippi River. Then the paddlefish turned upstream and at St. Louis veered west into the Missouri River. Anglers snagging for paddlefish caught the fish – a species also called spoonbill -- near Levasy, Mo., just downstream of Kansas City.
