I have a 1/2 acre pond that is recently dug and is about 8 feet deep average. I would like to stock a few paddlefish. Does anyone know of a paddlefish supplier? Also I understand that paddlefish eat plankton so would I need an established pond or how would i set a pond up for this species?

I doubt very seriously if a 1/2 acer pond could provide enough plankton or small fishes for even one paddle fish much less several. They would have to be fed. Of course paddle-fish do indeed eat fish feed and can be raised that way.
I agree about pond size if your are reliant upon plankton. Improvement in paddlefish carrying capacity could be realized by exclusion of other plankton consuming species, pretty much all species and use fertilizers.
They can also be grown on pellets.
I am guessing you want to see the fish?

here i remember reading a thread months
ago about this fish
