NANFA-- Check out Nonindigenous fishes - Channa micropeltes

This is the one I saw, unlikely to have reproducing population in Rhode
Island. Many of these fish are reported as though you can stand on the shore
watch the invasion go on. My favorite was a neon tetra that was found in a
lake in Wyoming and concern was raised over the question of if it could
spread down stream from this warm spring area. Personally I would be amazed
if there was a body of water any where in the continental USA where the
conditions exist that would allow neons to establish a reproductive
population bigger than a bath tub! I still am opposed to captive release but
lets be reasonable. Some fish Might establish a reproductive population. a
few have, and most will never do so under any conceivable circumstances! Get
real! <A HREF="">
