h2o<--says I don't think it can be stopped.

djkimmel:
Thanks h2o. We need to keep up on the latest and see if there is anything we can do - like pressure Congress into finalizing the bill to build a better barrier. Maybe it won't stop them, but slowing them way down might make other management methods feasible.

h2o:
Right Dan. Doing something sure beats doing nothing.  I've heard there in erie now. Lets just hope they don't do to much damage.

djkimmel:
I've heard some have been found in Erie in very low numbers, but not a lot of good information about that yet. Not sure why?

h2o:
I would think they don't want to talk about it. I heard some resturants in Canada release them as they cook one and release one. But this is just rumors. Also heard a few were netted. It's just a matter of time for this nusiance species makes it here in numbers. We have many invasion species now and there will be others. I wonder what species we spread in other parts of the world.
