This infographic outlines ‘The Curious History of Paddlefish in America.” Developed in partnership with the Food & Environment Reporting Network (FERN), the infographic tells the story of the illegal trade and overfishing that the Paddlefish has faced – with its eggs often being mislabeled and sold (for a hefty markup) as Russian caviar.

The infographic accompanies an article: “Caviar’s Last Stand: How the international caviar underground ended up in the Ozarks.”
