About this book

Snakeheads, fishes of the family Channidae, are native to Asia where they are cherished as food fishes and featured in aquaculture and as targets for recreational and artisanal fishers. In North America, they are among the most controversial of fishes. In part because of their fear-inspiring name and their toothy pictures, snakeheads have attracted media attention and produced alarm among the populace. To date, the effects of the snakehead invasion have not largely substantiated those early fears. However, without a doubt, snakeheads are excellent colonizers. They will persist in most of their current locations while they invade new habitat types, and they will encounter new species assemblages as their range expands.

To advance the science and understanding of snakeheads, and to promote discussion of how snakehead management should proceed, the First International Snakehead Symposium was held in July 2018. Proceedings of the First International Snakehead Symposium presents information presented at that symposium, including new science on snakehead diets and other aspects of biology and ecology, current species distributions and histories of invasion, along with descriptions of snakehead management and control efforts in locations inside and outside the continental USA. The book also reviews the breadth of opinion and attitudes among scientists, recreational fishers, and bow fishers in regard to these fish.

This book belongs on the shelf of fisheries scientists, invasion biologists, fisheries managers, and those interested in the harvest or control of this interesting and controversial fish.
