Track the spread of introduced blue catfish in the Chesapeake.

If you’ve caught a blue catfish where it doesn’t belong, report it to scientists at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. Native to the Mississippi, Ohio and Missouri Rivers, blue catfish were introduced to Virginia for sport fishing in the early 1970’s. This particular species is large in size and has adult predatory feeding behavior, so it consumes native fish species, such as white perch, largemouth bass, American shad, river herring and menhaden. By collaborating with researchers, you can help track the expanding range of this invasive species to increase understanding of their growing impact on the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem.
