Snakehead Fish Bounty

April 9, 2012 by staff 

Snakehead Fish Bounty, To combat a non-native fish that has taken over local waterways in Maryland and is causing great harm to local fish populations, a cash reward has been offered to anyone able to catch it. Anglers are hoping that the fish at the end of their lines is the notorious snakehead fish which in recent years has decimated the local bass fish populations by hunting in traditional bass spawning grounds.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources Inland Fisheries (DNR) is offering any angler a $200 gift card per fish that they are able to catch. In order to redeem the bounty, anglers need to upload a picture of themselves with the fish to the DNR’s Anglers Log site.

“We do not want snakeheads in our waters,” said Don Cosden, Director of DNR. “This initiative is a way to remind anglers that it is important to catch and remove the invasive species of fish.”
