    I heard this on radio 5 this morning so I looked it up on the web, and we were worried about East Europeans eating our fish?


    Politicians, like diapers, have to be changed frequently - and for the very same reason

    I'd hope they would struggle to survive the cold water temperatures.

    If it's in The Sun it must be true. Ask Ed.

    Look on the bright side - it will probably thin out the mink and cormorants.

    UK waterways will very rarely reach the temperatures required for even the Northern species of Snakehead to spawn. Most of that report is nonsense anyway (no surprise considering the source).

    I'll ask some people in fisheries if they know anything about it. It could easily be a tropical species that has been dumped, many of the Piranhas supposedly &quot;caught&quot; are far more likely dumped, found dead and then reported as having been hooked.

    Couldthis be what Enoch was refering to when he gave his 'Rivers of Blood' speech about immigration all those years ago!

    "It is feared the fish had been smuggled in for an aquarium and then illegally released."

    If this is a true account then whoever released that bloody thing ought to be shot!

    I haven't heard enough details about this story yet, but my firstreaction is to think it's just so much sensational, paper-selling ****.

    The captor thought it might be a burbot when he caught it, sent it into us to ID.
    Didn't work on the story myself but can't see them becoming a big problem, as has already been said they are very unlikely to breed over here.
    A very interesting species, have caught a few small ones in India, they call them murrel over there.
    The EA are on the case.
