I'm glad you posted this, I find the articles informative. It will certainly take a lot of education to change the ways of people in the world and that is step one. I for one had no idea that things like that were getting so out of control! It certainly makes clear the understanding why you should never dispose of your fish into lakes and rivers!

I get these news updates several times a day....I wish it were so little that I got maybe one a month....very distressing, especially when you see the impact that such things have had in places like Florida, Hawaii, Guam, Lake Victoria, etc. I predict that the snakehead and piranha bans are just the beginning of the impact on out hobby (alone) if people do not get a serious hold of things and start acting responsibly...as of now.
