      Here at least it's illegal to release any of the official invasive fish back into the water.

      I agree. Look at the problems released lion fish has caused. You should always research a fish before purchasing it to make sure you can provide the right environment for it. I am sure that is why some fish are illegal to have in some states. Someone had realeased something into the eniroment an it has wrecked havic. Look at the problems realeased snake heads have caused.

      The problems released snakeheads have caused are mostly in the human minds, studies in Florida show they fit in well with native gamefish,and don't seem to outcompete largemouth bass or other native gamefishes.

      I agree. I’ve always wanted a snakehead but due to irresponsible fishkeepers they are illegal. If you can’t keep your fish anymore sell it, give it away, or euthanize it.

      Maybe in Florida. Here in NY, while they are outcompeted and killed by our native bowfins, if put into a system where the bowfins have been fished to extinction, it will result in the complete collapse of the system as the worthless sankeheads eat everything else.

      I've only heard of that happening in small ponds, do you have any instances of this happening on a larger scale?

      Sorry for the delayed response. I can't seem to find mention of large scale damage besides that they outcompete bass according toUSGS. I know they have destroyed lakes and streams in southern New York as well.

      The claims that they outcompete bass is false and unsubstantiated

      I plan to go to FL to fish the Keys and then fish for cichlids. I would love to find jewel cichlids to take home.
