Re: NFC: blue pike stuff

a few years ago they caused a lot of concern in tennessees lakes and rivers.
if my memory serves me they were establishing colonies on dam gates and
interfering with the gates operation. i've seen several references to them
for filtration of the small closed koi ponds. that may be where this "good"
aspect comes from. i know they're not welcome in tennessees lakes and
rivers. are they foreign (non usa)???
