US chefs put northern snakehead on the menu

Authorities say the best way to control the invasive species of fish, is to eat them.

The northern snakehead, or Channa argus, has joined a tankful of invasive fish that US authorities are urging people to control by eating them.

The fish, which is native to Asia, is a major predator in its new ecosystem and is seen as a threat to native species.

And now, putting the torpedo-shaped snakehead on the menu is Washington-area restaurants’ way of helping to control these newcomers.
