    Polyodontidae, also known as paddlefishes, is a family of basal ray-finned fish characterized by their long and flat rostrum (snout). They are filter-feeders with unique feeding mechanisms, and are largely found in slow-moving or stagnant river and estuarine waters. The family includes only two extant species: the Chinese paddlefish (now believed to be extinct) and the American paddlefish.
