Gold Fish Invasion!
« on: April 22, 2019, 05:10:19 PM »
A inlet in Chaska is being overrun with goldfish!

https://youtu.be/k3rQRgbWDU4

Itís unknown how the fish got there, but officials believe itís likely from someone illegally dumping their pet goldfish. The waterway is connected to at least five other lakes and is also a popular trail spot. The noticeable, new orange hue to the water has people giving a double take.

ďIt makes me feel like Iím not in nature, like Iím in a pet store or koi pond and Iím not in Hawaii,Ē said Kim Daughton, who was walking along the trail.

While it may be tempting for a passerby to bring one of the inletís new residents home, county officials say itís against the law.

ďMinnesota state law states that you cannot transport live fish,Ē said Seveland. ď[A fishing] license does not give you the appropriate license to transport live fish.Ē

Any invasive specie taken by any method even without a license should benefit all of us.
