Giant Goldfish Invade The Great Lakes! “What The Friday!?!?!” From Flushed To Mega-Fish!

Now THAT’S A Goldfish!

Yes, it’s real, and it’s all our fault…my “What The Friday?!?!??!” story is all about giant Goldfish invading our Great Lakes!

Here is the story I found:

The “Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper”, a New York-based water restoration and protection agency, offered one major reason to forgo the flush when it shared an old Facebook photo on June 14 of a goldfish that had grown to a gargantuan 14 inches. The fish was found to be living in the Niagara River after, the agency wrote in its post, it was either flushed or released into the water.

Here’s more:

“Goldfish can survive year-round in our watershed and can destroy the habitat of native fish,” the post read. “Scientists estimate that tens of millions of goldfish now live in the Great Lakes.”

Tens of millions of goldfish?! Yes, it’s true, according to Jennifer Fee, marketing director at Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper.

OK then, we’ve got to band together to keep this invasion from taking over our great lakes! Because what begins innocently this way:

End up like this!

By the way, it’s a serious problem as the Goldfish wreck havoc on the lake eco-systems…plus, what’s next?

That’s right: Sharknado!

  2. We have people who keep goldfish that big (and much bigger) in ponds here.
    They are part of the Carp family, so should be edible, especially for the Chinese residents. Time to start trawling up those ‘millions’, I reckon. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
