This fish tale is unfortunately true and all the characters are real. It involves monster fish, a greedy pet dealer, an international smuggling operation, undercover agents, mobile surveillance teams and a cross-border investigation. While the fish has generated two science fiction monster movies, “Snakehead Terror” and “Frankenfish,” the real horror is the possible introduction of snakeheads in the Great Lakes ecosystem. This invader could have devastating consequences for native and commercially important fish species and cause serious ecological and economic harm to this region.
