Invasive Fish Move into Rappahannock River

by AP posted May 16 2013 11:09AM
     FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) - The invasive northern snakehead fish has moved into the Rappahannock River.
 
     Department of Game and Inland Fisheries biologist John Odenkirk tells the Free Lance-Star that an angler caught a snakehead last July in Ruffins Pond, which feeds into a tributary of the Rappahannock. Since then, snakeheads have been caught at several sites downriver in the lower Rappahannock.
 
     Odenkirk says the fish likely can now be found anywhere in the river.
 
     He says wildlife officials hope to contain the snakeheads and keep them out of other Chesapeake Bay tributaries.
 
     The snakehead is native to Asia and is a top-level predator that can crowd out native fish.
