Paddlefish in Arkansas have doubled in size in the last 30 years, and their average annual growth began increasing going forward in time in 2015.

While, in Missouri, the growth rate of the paddlefish is as we would expect it to be - getting smaller, going forward in time, as the organism gets closer and closer to its maximum possible size.

Very significant variations in growth rate are being seen regionally.

The Ether may be visualized as a fluid. Death energy dissolves into the Ether, as dye does in water. Geographic areas that have been gifted extensively are going to have a different quality than those that have not.

This necessarily leads to a deeper review of Missouri fish records, to see if the pattern holds.

It’s also why and how meta analysis of the subject can and will provide a greater understanding of how the Ether “works”.

Tactically, I’m writing articles on an ongoing basis so that I am on the high ground when the conversation hits wider awareness. I may seize that moment to leave the field of current research and go back into history as deeply as I may. Finding all the obfuscated pre-internet records. Cataloguing things alphabetically, going systematically through the body of data.

It will be an interesting sidebar to observe just how long it takes supposed fish-lovers such as the collective body of marine biologists to undertake similar research.

Paddlefish in Arkansas have doubled in size in the last 30 years, and their average annual growth began increasing going forward in time in 2015.

Paddlefish in Oklahoma have increased in size by a third in just under 30 years, and their annual growth began increasing going forward in time in 2011.

The current South Dakota state record paddlefish, from 2014, weighed 127 pounds, and was 5.1% larger than the previous 120 pound, 12 ounce record holder from 1979. The record remained unbroken for decades and was broken by a significant margin in 2014.

While, in Missouri, the growth rate is as we would expect it to be - getting smaller, going forward in time, as the organism gets closer and closer to its maximum possible size.

ARKANSAS

A paddlefish caught in Arkansas in 2020 weighed 157 pounds, 103% larger than a previous state record holder from 1989, which weighed 77 pounds, 4 ounces. That’s a baseline average rate of growth of 7.9% over those 31 years.

The fish from 2020 is twice the size of a previous record holder from 1989.

Paddlefish in Arkansas have doubled in size in the last 30 years.

A paddlefish caught in Arkansas in 2020 weighed 157 pounds, 18.4% larger than the 132 pound, 8 ounce state record holder from 2018. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins as the organism gets closer and closer to its maximum possible size.

That’s an average annual rate of growth of 9.2% over those two years. That’s 16% above the baseline. That’s supposed to be impossible. The rate of growth of any organism is going to slow as it gets closer and closer to its maximum possible size.

That record holder from 2018 was 26% larger than the previous 105 pound record holder from 2015. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins as the organism gets closer and closer to its maximum possible size.

That’s an average annual rate of growth of 8.6% over those three years. That’s another data point showing the growth rate going forward in time. It’s 8.8% above the baseline.

The average growth rate from 2018 to 2020 was 6.9% higher than the average growth rate from 2015 to 2018.

That record holder from 2015 was 2.4% larger than the previous 102 pound, 8 ounce record holder from 2007.

That’s an average annual rate of increase of .3% over those eight years. That’s 2,533% below the baseline.

The average growth rate from 2015 to 2018 was 2,766% higher than the average growth rate from 2007 to 2015.

That record holder from 2007 was 4% larger than the previous 98 pound, 8 ounce record holder from 1994. That’s an average annual rate of growth of .17% over those 23 years.

The average growth rate from 2007 to 2015 was 76.4% higher than the average growth rate from 1994 to 2007.

That record holder from 1994 was 27% larger than the previous 77 pound, 4 ounce record holder from 1989. That’s an average annual rate of growth of 5.4% over those 5 years. That’s 42% below the baseline. It’s the first data in the set. It’s impossible that it would be the lowest, as the growth of the organism is going to decrease, going forward in time, as the organism gets closer and closer to its maximum possible size.

The record prior to 1989 has been scrubbed from the web.

A staggering increase in growth rate from 2015 to 2018, compared to the years previous, and the growth rate increasing still further from 2018 to 2020.

OKLAHOMA

The current Oklahoma state record Paddlefish, from 2018, weighed 132.5 pounds, 32.5% larger than two previous 100 pound record holders from prior to 1992.

Paddlefish in Oklahoma have increased in size by a third in just under 30 years.

The current Oklahoma state record Paddlefish, from 2018, weighed 132.5 pounds, 18.3% larger than a previous 112 pound record holders from 1992. That’s a baseline average annual rate of growth of .70% over those 26 years.

The current Oklahoma state record Paddlefish, from 2018, weighed 132.5 pounds, 5.6% larger than a previous 125 pound, 7 ounce record holder from 2011. That’s an average annual rate of growth of .8% over those seven years.

That record holder from 2011 was 3.7% larger than the previous 121 pound record holder from 2003. That’s an average annual rate of increase of .46% over those eight years. The growth rate from 2011 to 2018 was 73% higher than the growth rate from 2003 to 2011. That’s another data point showing the growth rate going forward in time.

That record holder from 2003 was 11.9% larger than the previous 112 pound record holder from 1992. That’s an average annual rate of growth of .62% over those nineteen years.

The growth rate from 1992 to 2003 was 25.8% higher than the growth rate from 2003 to 2011.

That’s 27% below the baseline. It’s the first data in the set. It’s impossible that it would be the lowest, as the growth of the organism is going to decrease, going forward in time, as the organism gets closer and closer to its maximum possible size.

There were two 100 pound prior record holders from prior to 1992. Records prior to 1992 have been otherwise scrubbed from the web.

SOUTH DAKOTA

The current South Dakota state record paddlefish, from 2014, weighed 127 pounds, and was 5.1% larger than the previous 120 pound, 12 ounce record holder from 1979.

MISSOURI

The current Missouri state record paddlefish, from 2015, weighed 140 pounds, 9 ounces, and was .9% larger than the previous 139 pound, 4 ounce record holder from 2002.

That record holder from 2002 was 3.3% larger than the previous 134 pound, 12 ounce record holder from 1998.

That record holder from 1998 was 21.3% larger than the previous 111 pound record holder from 1980.

In Missouri, the growth rate is as we would expect it to be - getting smaller, going forward in time, as the organism gets closer and closer to its maximum possible size.
