A natural predator is rearing its ugly head again. The snakehead fish is spotted in Maryland waters.
The invasive snakehead fish from Asia that’s been thriving in Maryland waters, has been given a makeover into a state trophy fish.
Organizers of this year’s Potomac Snakehead Tournament say anglers can catch all the snakeheads they want, help rid the river of an invasive species and maybe win $1,500.
It’s been 10 years since the state tried to eradicate what became known as the “frankenfish.”
Maryland is offering fishermen prizes worth up to $200 for killing snakeheads.
