Miscellaneous Exotics

This group consists of a wide variety of fishes that have arrived in North America either intentionally or accidentally, and become established as invasive species. The vast majority of these have gained a foothold in South Florida, which has become a seething cesspool of invasive species. These fish are nuisances which threaten the native fish community. Many of them are also exciting angling targets and worthy of our attention.


This is also the default species group that new species will show up in if no other group is chosen, so please let the websmasters know if there's something here that shouldn't be!

Cichlids, Tilapia, Snakeheads, Walking Catfish, Plecos, Peacock Bass
