I spoke to a DFO, who, did not seem all that up to date with these fish. I gave him the link the DFO wrote which I have posted. He put me on hold for some time (reading the article I guess) then asked if he could phone me back which he did! The call back was short, explained to me someone with more knowledge would phone back. A 'Anne' called me back, passed of my concerns to downtown to the invasion of species dept. as she herself was not up to date as well. So I am now awaiting that return. People have tried to raise these fish in lakes, streams, and rivers. The U.S have undercover agents stopping the import of these fish. There have now been reports of the Snakehead migrating into the Missippi and Eastern lakes and streams.
We need to take a stand on these fishing imports and preserve our home waters. I encourage you all to raise concern.
