Snakehead fish found in Potomac River
The northern snakehead fish made its way to the Metro area after a nine-year hiatus, the LoudounTimes.com reports.
It first made an appearance in the D.C. area in 2002, when two were found in a Crofton, Md., pond. This time it was found in one of the largest river systems on the Atlantic Coast, the Potomac River.
Lester Thorton Jr., who caught the aggressive predator on April 25 near White’s Ferry, said the fish estimated at about 2-feet long.
All snakehead species are known for their sharp teeth, ferocious appetites and extensive reproduction.
