Paddlefish. There are many in Western PA. The allegheny & ohio rivers have them. They are protected in PA and must be released if caught

I ate some pickled paddlefish once. Fun to say but not good to eat.

I love the people that say they are great eating. It must be to justify the trip. I gave up snagging paddle fish once I ate one. I can drink beer at home.

The first package was really good. The second and there on, not good at all. I suspect that the meat oxidizes in the freezer.
