Re: Dealing with the real fish? problem

Is there a list of the exotics you would expect to find in any given area?  Is
south Florida the main region NFC intends concentrate their efforts?  Have
fish traps been ok'ed for use in this effort?  Properly set fish traps can
catch virtually every fish in a pond, a large number of fish traps set and
maintained over a several months should make quite a dent in the exotic fish
population and allow for the unharmed release of native fish.  A log book
should be kept of each trap and the number and species of fish caught (both
native and exotic).  That way any trends in species captured could be charted.
