They'll probably get down here before long!

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission confirmed Monday that an invasive species, the northern snakehead fish, was recently caught in the Monongahela River.

It is the first confirmed snakehead fish in Southwestern Pennsylvania, according to Kris Kuhn, chief of the fisheries management division for the commission. The invasive fish has a snake-like appearance with its sleek shape and pattern of coloring. It is known to reside only in the southeastern corner of the state, according to the agency.

It's amazing to read the comments... there are some idiots out there that advocate for expansion of the snakehead... because they are fun to catch and good to eat... I'm okay with another plague... i'll take my chances.

Can't believe that some anglers welcome snakehead with open arms. 

You know what else is fun to catch and good to eat? The native species! We have plenty of good-fighting, good-eating fish around here. We aren't hurting in that department.
