Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 north west west coast represented Northern Snakehead Channa argus These predatory fish compete with native species for food and habitat. As adults, they become voracious predators, feeding on other fish, crustaceans, frogs, small reptiles, and even birds and mammals. Snakeheads are predatory, consuming microscopic zooplankton and crustaceans as juveniles, and fish, insects, crustaceans as adults. Also, snakeheads can survive in water with very low oxygen, giving them a competitive advantage over other species, such as trout, pike, and bass that require more oxygen in the water. Northern snakeheads are most readily identified by the long dorsal and anal fins, the dark, irregular blotches along their sides, pelvic fins located beneath the pectorals, and truncate (not rounded) tail. Many native fish and other smaller species can start to grow back to when it was normal before the predator was introduced. Also fishing industries can grow with a top predator threat eating away their income. For small infestations, physically removal with nets, traps or introducing a new predatory species mat eradicate a small infestation. For a large infestation, there is really many options due to their ability to live in lower oxygen zones than other fish, and that they can live almost anywhere.
