    In our Great Lakes we have a number of invasive species... zebra mussels, round goby, and now grass carp. A few years back, you couldn't even fish without catching goby after goby. Everyone kills them when they catch them, and the fish started eating them, so their population has dropped, but they're still there. They reproduce all year round!

    I sure would like to see what exactly is living in the great lakes.
    I'm sure there is all kinds of alien species down there!

    Just got back from fishing at the same spot again this morning, didn't catch a thing, but talked to a guy that fishes there all the time. Apparently he pulls all kinds of weird things out of that pond, well it's called a lake, but it's pretty dang small... I really don't understand how people think that they are doing a nice thing by releasing their fish, great, their pet survives only to destroy the fish that belong there.

    Most of our invasive species came from the bilges of ocean liners. Zebra mussels and gobies both came from europe by boat, and get deposited in the Great Lakes. By the time they figure out that they've arrived, it's too late.

    Yes that's true, but in this case the only way these fish got there was by being released. There are a few boats in this lake, but since they are paddle boats for tourists to rent i don't think they are gonna be cruising the open seas, and bringing back hitchhikers :)

    No doubt. Most tropical fish can't live here anyways, our winters are TOO COLD!
    Even if you did release a school of snakeheads here, I don't think that they could adapt.

    My two cents would be euthanize. If you call anyone about it you are just drawing an eye for no reason and they same end will come to the fish. Just, they probably wont be so nice about it. Take it out of the water, put it on the ground and cut off the head in one clean swipe with a cleaver, toss the carcass. Best place is outside lol

    Very true.. bowfin look almost exactly like a snakehead! Most people have never seen or heard of them and may mistake it for a snakehead. We have many bowfin in the shallow creeks and canals, and they get HUGE! Here's the Michigan record for largest bowfin.
