Report Invasive Species Through USGS Hotline 

northern snakehead

Help minimize the damage done to our fisheries by Asian carp, snakeheads, zebra mussels and other aquatic invasive species.

If you see an invader, report it to the Aquatic Invasive Species Hotline. The toll-free number for this voluntary reporting system maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is 877-786-7267 (877-STOP-ANS).

Or you can go here to find a contact for your state.

Not sure that you can recognize an invader when you see one?

USGS provides photos and fact sheets at this site.

Incredibly, in the fishes listing, USGS documents 715 marine and freshwater species. Some are exotics; others are native to the United States, but have been introduced outside their natural ranges.
