Vermont Fish and Wildlife say “watch out for Sea Lamprey”


Vermont Fish and Wildlife is asking you to be on the lookout for a unique type of fish. The Sea Lamprey can be caught in the Connecticut river.

Although they might look a little scary, Vermont Fish and Wildlife is asking that you help keep them around.

They say the fish play a vital role to the ecosystem, and are native to the river basin. However, there is a different non-native species of Lamprey that are controlled as a nuisance in lake champlain.

They say it’s important to note the difference between those in the lake and those in the river.
