Invasive Snakehead Fish

Snakehead Fish 

Invasive Snakehead Fish

Released in BC Fresh Waters

From China coming to a pond near you.

This Chinese import, the dreaded Snakehead, alien to British Columbia has a voracious appetite and has the ability to cross over land.

The BC Government has placed a $250,000 fine for anyone releasing one into our waters, along with zebra mussels.

After draining a Burnaby pond, in Central Park they captured one.  

Further investigation found these toothy fish are brought in for the Chinese population, live, for Asian specialty food stores and as pets. 

It's hard to fathom, people eat these fish.

They've been known to eat birds, and small pets.
