SNAKEHAEADS IN PA

I was wondering how many people have caught snakeheads here in PA ? Yes , they are here , have been since 2004 I believe and that comes from the PA Fish Commission . They have been located in the Philly area , but I don't know where else , if any . FYI : If you do catch one , they are supposed to be great tasting .

    Supposedly, snakeheads are the best cure for Approved Trout Water.

    They have shown usefulness in eradicating brown trout and other invasive nuisance species.

    Excuse the misspelling on the title subject [ Snakeheads ] ! I had a fast finger on " sending " although I did proofread . I realized it as soon as it was sent . Yes , I know , "so what "
    [mispelling] some will think .

    Great link Pork on ID'ing Snakeheads ! I started to write about that in opening this thread ,but it started to become lengthy so I aborted . Snakeheads make an interesting fish for the aquarium and were once popular , but they are illegal now although they can still be purchased . There are some 28 species of them ranging from around 10" full grown to 3'. Like other fish , they possess indeterminate growth which means they will continue to grow as long as they live and other factors like the size of their aquarium , availability of food , etc ... . It would be quite possible to have them exceed the normal 3' size . Thanks again Pork for an informative article !

    from what i hear they are in florida big time they kill for fun and do not eat the whole fish frog or what ever they can put in there mouth they also breath air and what i know is if caught kill it do not put it back and contact div of wildlife in your area they are doing dna testing to find the area it came from you may be told to plant it in your garden but you will be told to kill it
