If you capture a snakehead fish:  Do not release the fish or throw it up on the bank (it could wriggle back into the water)

Early Detection Rapid Response

When a new species is introduced, the best strategy is Early Detection and Rapid Response. This includes monitoring habitats to discover new species soon after introduction, reporting sightings of previously unknown species in an area, and working quickly to keep the species from becoming established and spreading. EDRR can slow range expansion of ANS, and avoid the need for costly long-term control efforts. Below are key resources developed by the Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force, its members, regional panels, or subcommittees to detect and response to aquatic nuisance species before they establish and cause harm:
