Invasive catfish?

 Been catching a lot of eel tailed catfish through Cossack, Sams creek and Johns creek. I don't remember ever seeing them or hearing about them existing there before. Are they moving in from elsewhere or have I just been lucky enough not to hook one up until recently? Have (unfortuneley) caught hundreds of "normal" catfish but in recent months there has seemed to be 6 eel tail for every normal fella, surely I'm not the only one that's noticed?
