    banning a fish that has invaded an ecosystem is pointless, the damage is already done and is irreversible banning it does nothing at that point besides hurt fish keepers.

    That is not quite correct. Countries or states, are often much larger geographically than a particular ecosystem.
    While I do agree with you that once a species has become established in an ecosystem, the future restriction of import into that ecosystem's geographical region will have little to no effect on removing the species from that ecosystem.

    But restricting that species from being imported into a country can prevent them from being established elsewhere within that country where they could also survive. A perfect example of this is the Northern snakehead. The federal government took quick action after established populations were discovered in Maryland and Virginia which no doubt has prevented the spread of this species across the U.S.

    What do I do if some fish from the list got caught? I mean I fish only in permitted areas and use bait for the legal kinds of fish, still some of the illegal ones appear in those waters sometimes and get caught.

    I feel it would be best to contact your local fish & game for the best options/actions in your state, as they vary a bit.
