The snakeheads are members of the freshwater perciform fish family Channidae, native to Africa and Asia. But how come does these kind of fish become invasive in the fresh water in USA? They are a top predator that’s why Maryland Department of Natural Resources Inland Fisheries Director Don Cosden told Fox News that they don’t want snakeheads in their eco-system. They make sure that it will be out of their waters as soon as possible. Thus, this problem is not solved overnight, they are highly aware that they will need a lot of effort to diminish the existence of snakeheads in their waters.
