(Cleveland) - Any of us who have had goldfish have probably wondered how big they can get if they're not in a bowl. Well, just take a look at this one
These technicians from the Ohio Division of Wildlife were doing a fish survey near Fairport Harbor, when they found this goldfish, which is about a foot long. Problem is, goldfish are not native to the Great Lakes, so this was apparently a pet goldfish that someone disposed of by letting it go in the lake or a river.
The Division of Wildlife is using this as a reminder to not let pet fish go in local waters, as they can have a negative impact on other fish species, mainly by taking away food sources that native fish need.
