I think we have become adversely sensitized to the phrase
'invasive species' because it involves some animals that herp enthusiasts would like to keep. But I have no doubt whatsoever that there ARE invasive species. I recall pulling Japanese beetles off of flower plants outside when I was young, and there would be zillions of them.

Here is an interesting article with a control perspective: eat the invaders. These fish are 10 feet long, and a few of them would make several fish fry dinners for a family. I think as a fast start to population control, fishing them could be exempted for need of a fishing license, and no limit.
