The northern snakehead can also breathe air and can survive in low oxygenated systems.

"Thanks to the quick report by an angler, our staff was able to investigate and confirm the presence of this species in this water body. We are now taking steps to determine if they have spread from this water body and, hopefully, keep it from spreading to other Georgia waters", he concluded.

Johansson said a prime example of an invasive species being dropped off outside of its natural environment is the lionfish.

Georgia's Wildlife Resources Division posted a notice on its Facebook page urging fishermen to "immediately kill and freeze any suspected snakeheads as well as snap photos of their quarry".
