Pick Your Poison

The results are in: State officials in Maryland have decided to deal with the Snakeheads (Channa spp.) in a Crofton pond by poisoning the entire pond. After using herbicides to kill the pond's vegetation, the fish-killer Rotenone will be applied. Eradication has its costs, in this case it is the sacrifice of the entire flora and fauna of a pond. Hopefully the Snakeheads won't use their ability to walk on land to escape to a new body of water.
