    Invasive and Exotic Fish
    Came across this just to throw more choices at ya, but still I don't think it is a comprehensive list by any means.

    I agree with williamhj I think it would be an interesting perspective "for your paper to examine positives as well as negatives with invasives."

    Also you asked "Is there anything else about these fish you feel would be good to put in this paper?"

    It may seem silly to some, but I would be sure to identify "invasive" in your paper. In other words what is invasive?

    I am still pondering on that question myself..better yet the positives and negatives of invasive species question.
    Between those two question and the invasive species you have chosen you shouldn't have much problem getting your 6-10 pages.

    Hopefully you are already started on your paper but for what it is worth my recommendation is to research and wright about fish species that you are most interested in. (Yes, I majored in the Obvious) Research different species that you fish for or ones that compromise a fishery that you enjoy and/or are passionate about. Get the straight up nitty gritty information from the local fishery biologist, DNR ect. That usually simplifies things for me, makes it fun and interactive. Better yet you are nearly guaranteed an "A" for putting in the extra effort for something that you are already interested in and want to learn more about.

    Also, I would be interested in reading your paper once you are done. If you don't mind posting it or sending it my way I'm sure it would be a great read.

    The never ending debacle of invasive species....
    You have chosen a great topic!

    Good Luck!

    Ahhh ok, I actually didnt know the Squaws were native to the Columbia.

    As of right now my list of fish is going to be: Snake Heads, Browns, Alskan Pike (pending information). Back ups if I cant find enough info will be Asian Carp, Cats, and lastly squaw fish.

    I think I will start off just explaining what an Invasive fish is and what some precautions/actions are being taken to combat them.

    Then I will go into detail on the specific fish and cover, Country of Origin, How they got to the US or the location they are now in, and what impacts they are having, and then slightly touch on the specific methods of combating them.

    Thanks for the help all, I tried googling a lot of this info but the amount and type of information I was getting was frustrating

    Hey, perhaps if you send it along before it's due you can get some feedback on content, organization, and style... There are folks here with a lot of knowledge and many of us have written our share of papers through many years of school.

    Thanks Diver Dan, if anyone else wants to just let me know.

    I just got done reading a bit of the history about the brown trout and Ive got to say its quite interesting. I honestly had no idea some of the stuff the article was talking about.

    Im still having issues finding some good articles about how the population of brown trout (or any fish) today is being managed. I know some fish have large limits or no limits at all and some sections of water have been poisoned, but I cant find quality information on the brown trout in general. Ideas? Right now im just hitting multiple DWNR websites and reading what different states are saying, but its not providing much.

    Thanks a ton for all of the help guys!
