They could feed on anything, could grow anywhere and grew and multiplied fast-growing breed, so, they held great commercial income to the breeders. But once released to water bodies, they could grow fast and since they are carnivorous, they fed on both the inhabitants and their food, leading to the extinction of indigenous species. This has become a matter of concern for environmentalists and the call of the hour is to protect our species from extinction to this. The fishes should have been limited to the only commercial, where they are bred for the market, but they have made their way to our lakes, river, and ponds tank.
