- Promote the sport fishing of snakeheads to reduce the population of these fish in the Potomac and its tributaries.
- Raise public awareness of snakeheads as a high quality, commercially viable, food source.
- Support the Maryland Department of Natural Resources in its efforts to combat invasive species throughout the Potomac River watershed.
