Shouldn't they use a fish that is native to the area, and not an invasive species?

My roommate says I'll die by giant turtle.

They have plenty of other fish better equipped to deal with that....

Truly disastrous! Why are they doing this? Invasive fish species are such a big problem in many parts of Asia.

Someone from another forum brought up the asian carp as an example.

its just a shame. any time you introduce a new fish it can really mess up an eco system. i hope that these new fish are a first, and they do not become invasive. but odds are against that.

First they attack the amazonian forest, then the native freshwater species, very scary.
