Re: Fishes in the mail. Crawfishes, mollusk, waterbugs ....

Here's another idea.  Since we (the NFC as a whole) are trying to remove
non-native fishes from local waters, how's about inverts as well...i.e.
the dreaded Zebra Mussel?  I doubt that it could be scored the same as a
fish, but perhaps we could award points for every pound of mussels
removed?   How's that idea?
