A warning has been sent out to "immediately kill" an invasive fish species which can breathe on land.
So what should you do if you happen to catch or think you have caught a Northern Snakehead?
Georgia's Department of Natural Resources in the United States warned residents about the northern snakehead fish on Facebook, writing that the creatures are "bad news".
The northern snakehead is a long, thin fish, similar in appearance to the native bowfin.
An invasive Asian snakehead fish that can grow to nearly a metre long and exist on land has surfaced in Georgia for the first time.

The Northern Snakehead Fish is native to countries like Russian Federation and China but not to the United States.
"Our first line of defense in the fight against aquatic invasive species, such as the northern snakehead, are our anglers", said Matt Thomas, Chief of Fisheries for the Wildlife Resources Division, in a statement. The species is also native to China, Russia and North Korea and is feared because of its predatory nature leading to competition with local fish for food.
They prey on native species and because of their venom, lionfish have less predators in the Atlantic than in their natural Indo-Pacific habitat.
Reports of a snakehead fish come out of Georgia this week.
Today they can be found off the coast of Georgia and have made their way up to New York, Johansson said. Wildlife officials in the USA state have formulated a foolproof animal control measure - killing it on sight.
It's unclear how the fish ended up in the pond, but a blog post from the department explains invasive species "are often introduced throughout unauthorized release".
- DO NOT RELEASE IT. - Kill it immediately and freeze it. - If possible, take pictures of the fish.
