Kill it IMMEDIATELY if you see! Land walking snakehead fish are invading Georgia waters – WATCH =>

For the first time, invasive northern snakehead fish have been confirmed in Georgia waters. In early October, an angler reported catching the fish in a pond located on private property in Gwinnett County. 

 

What should you do if you find a snakehead?

Anglers are the first line of defense. If you think you’ve caught a northern snakehead:
  1. DO NOT RELEASE IT.
  2. Kill it immediately and freeze it. They can survive on land.
  3. If possible, take pictures of the fish. Include close ups of its mouth, fins and tail.
  4. Note where it was caught like the waterbody, landmarks or GPS coordinates.
  5. Immediately report it to your regional Georgia DNR Wildlife Resources Division Fisheries Office.
