Bluegill, Bass, Gar as Invasives

And from the Japan Times, an article regarding our native fish as invasives in Japan:

Bummer.

Bummer.

My brain comes and goes, but I thought the first gift of bluegill came from the then mayor of Chicago..... and the moat at the imperial palace was the epicenter.

Carpy Diem!

Interesting article. I don't

Interesting article. I don't know why I've never thought much about "our" species being invasives elsewhere, but  aside from wondering about the effects of planted trout in the southern hemisphere, I haven't.

It's time for someone to push the reset button on the world's waters and put everything back the way it was at the beginning of the game. Then we can screw it all up again, but maybe this time not quite as badly--or at least not quite as quickly.
