Northern SnakeheadInvasive Species - Northern Snakehead

Northern Snakehead (Channidae)

Snakeheads are freshwater fish native to parts of Asia and Africa.

Currently, they are not found in Oregon but if introduced would threaten native fish, the recreational fishing industry and aquatic ecosystems.

Voracious predators, they feed on other fishes, crustaceans, frogs and small reptiles.
