Catching a few fish out of a Delaware River Drainage in May. This was the first time I had caught/seen anything other than Bass in this drainage.
A thought about invasive species- Here in NJ (USA) we are told to Kill the Snakeheads, as they are invasive and disrupt our native fish populations. Meanwhile in Japan where snakeheads are native, they are told to kill LM Bass which have been illegally introduced, in fear they will dominate the snakeheads. In both places, neither species has destroyed the other and in both cases a balance was found between the species allowing them to coexist. In both cases, the Invasive species grew as large or larger in its introduced habitat than its native range, for example, The Potomac River in MD/VA produced a new world record Northern Snakehead in 2013, and Japanese waters produced a world record tying 22lb 4 oz LM.
Food for thought.
