If you believe you have caught a northern snakehead…
• DO NOT RELEASE IT.
• Kill it immediately and freeze it (in case it is requested by fisheries agencies for positive identification).
• If possible, take pictures of the fish, including close ups of its mouth, fins and tail.
• Note where it was caught (waterbody, landmarks or GPS coordinates).
• Report it to:
- The National Park Service (email@example.com, 570-493-1022 cell/texts).
- Your regional New York DEC fisheries office (http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/7927.html) or to DEC’s Invasive Species Bureau (518-402-9425 | e-mail us).
