        The sea lamprey and zebra muscles in Lake Erie.
        Gobies are a pain in the arse.
        Sure am concerned about the possibility of the Asian Carp getting a foot hold too.

            Here in southwest Alabama, you will find, cogon grass---the weed from hell, kudzu, Japanese privet, tallow (popcorn) trees, Chinese lespedeza, chinaberry, mimosa, Japanese honeysuckle (a good thing, deer love it and it smells good), Chinese privet, Japanese climbing fern and a bunch more that really aren't too much of a problem.

            In the Gulf, we have lionfish and several types of foreign jellyfish. We have the Asian carp, but not to the extent on the Mississippi drainage.

                The Feds claim that they reintroduced wolves to Wyoming. That is not entirely true. What they did was instead of bringing the Wyoming Rocky Mountain wolf species back from near extinction, they just imported a larger, more aggressive invasive species of wolf from Canada that made quick work of completing the extinction of the native species of wolf. These big invasive species of Canadian wolf have decimated our elk and already struggling moose populations. The wolves have already tripled their target population and we can't kill them fast enough to even hope to keep a lid on the wolf population bomb. I haven't killed an elk in the past two years. They just are not there like they used to be, and when you do see some they are in tight defensive herd mode and spook at a quarter mile like antelope because the wolf pack is right behind them.

                    New Jersey has several unwelcome fish species such as the snakehead and the Asian swamp eel.
                    Wild pigs just started up five years ago and are located in two of NJ southern counties.

                    Where are all the Florida guys on this link? The Sunshine state has the Burmese python invasion and made national news up here.

                      Thanks, redfishunter, the feral hogs were just too obvious. I missed the elephant in the living room.

                            Zebra mussels, milfoil, curly leaf pondweed, canary reedgrass, purple loosestrife, buckthorn, gypsy moths and emerald ash borer are some of the big ones in MN right now.
                            The Asian Carp are on their way if not already here.
