Snakehead Fish Caught in Ontario

Last week, an Ontario woman caught a Northern Snakehead fish off of the Welland Canal which links to Lake Erie and Ontario. This fish is a vicious, invasive species that will destroy ecosystems and the fish that call Canada home. The Northern Snakehead is native to Asia and is not welcome to Canada. These invaders can do great damage since they can live out of water for days as it pursues prey or searches for a new home. Click here to read more on the Northern Snakehead fish.
