Maryland seeks to lure anglers to join 'Frankenfish' battle

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 09:12
Maryland officials are hoping that the prospect of landing a record fish will enlist anglers in the battle against the northern snakehead, a voracious newcomer dubbed "Frankenfish." The invasive snakehead, which can breathe air and travel short distances over land, has spread throughout much of the Potomac River basin in Virginia and Maryland in the last decade, snapping up anything in front of it. The new program to be formally announced next week sets official records for snakeheads caught in Maryland waters. "Snakeheads are thriving," said Joe Evans, spokesman for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. "We've been encouraging people to catch them, keep them and eat them since they are a non-native species that has a capacity to affect the local fish population." There are enough of the fish in the region to support the annual Potomac Snakehead Tournament, where some anglers call the fish Potomac pike.
