Snakeheads were reported in my state's waters for the first time very recently. Watched a whole news report on it today. Welcome to Georgia, another invasive species. 

 

Good news is that Georgia DNR is trying their absolute hardest to get them out before a major problem arises.

They are in NYS.  They poisoned them out of a pond in Westchester and there is a substantial population at the world fair grounds in Flushing Queens.  I think its called Willow Pond.

Are they that disruptive? Seemed like mass hysteria a few years ago and nothing since. Are they destroying ecosystems?

They are aggressive, protective of their young and eat just about anything that swims or falls in the water.

Kind of like the Asian Carp only they have teeth and taste much better.

So since being introduced have they exploded and taken over like the carp?

No major problems will arise unless the DNR trys their absolute hardest to get rid of them.

 

Embrace a new and better gamefish.
