Kings of Queens

The northern snakehead (Channa argus) has been found in the wild in New York, according to this story from the Queens Chronicle. So far this summer, state workers have found at least five of the famous fish in lakes in Flushing Meadows Park. So, come on, fess up, who dumped them there?



Wow, somehow I missed these reports and I live in Queens, not far from Flushing Meadows!

I find it discouraging that the snakehead has already overstayed it's media welcome. It wasn't so long ago that the snakehead generated a lot of ink, but that was prior to 9/11/01.

Well, the snakehead's already had three movies made about it. And the story did make the New Yorker (link). Sometimes the ISW is a bit ahead of its time :-) and the story doesn't become big until weeks later.
