I just wish I wasn't averse to eating fish from the river. I've heard snakeheads can be good eating.

Much like the spotted lantern fly or even carp and flatheads, I don’t see a scenario where we don’t have further expansion. Given their voracious attitude and supposed strong fight, I would also assume PFBC will eventually lessen efforts to control them like they did with flatheads. Other than catching and killing, which isn’t generally in our nature, what can be done?

Fortunately the Susky is big enough that NSH could be targeted in boats by bow fishermen, who have put a major dent in the population in the Potomac. I don't think it's a given that the fish will make it past the dam, though, if they're being killed intentionally when they try passing through the fish ladder.

Why are you averse to eating fish from the river? I'll munch down on some snakeheads for sure.

I guess it's because I see all the runoff from the city that enters it. Granted, it may be a small percentage of the total volume. The only fish I generally eat are saltwater fish. I don't like the taste of trout, and pickerel have eluded me for years.

From what I'm told the Northern Snakehead doesn't hold contaminates as heavy as other fishes

Exactly. No clue why anyone would be happy about this ugly ass fish spreading into other waters.

It's a given they will pass the fish ladder. Believe it or not, unsporting Beer swilling idiots will be the ones moving them past the dam.

I hear they are good eating but The raccoons will feast on any I catch. The need to attempt to control them is readily apparent and the harvesting of them is what's worked the best so far.

Well, they showed up in Bernharts Dam in Berks Co a few years ago, reproduced, and then the dam needed to be drained for dam safety reasons. The outflow goes under Reading and into the Schuylkill R. The dam was 50 miles from any know source. I have not kept up with the dam breaching situation, but I asume that may have been drained by now.

I do wonder how long it will take before these fish are here in my neck of the woods. I know that it is going to happen and I don't believe that there is any stopping it. I dislike the fact that these fish will hang in all of the slack water areas where the redbreasts and smallies will spawn. Flatheads are now showing up in good numbers up here and sizable fish are being caught. The world is a constantly changing place. I bet in 5 years I have snakeheads here which I'll be eating and I'll have lanternflies here which will be trying to eat my grapes.

I still don't think the snakeheads will find the upper Juniata all that suitable, however.
