A gigantic goldfish has been found in Lake Tahoe, according to LiveScience. Deep down in the depths of Lake Tahoe, researchers trawling the freshwater lake discovered a goldfish that was approximately 1.5 feet long and 4.2 pounds. The discovery has biologists in the area concerned about the goldfish population’s impact on native species of plants and animals in the lake.
“These fish are competing with the native fish, and that’s a big part of the problem,” Heather Segale, spokeswoman for the Tahoe Environmental Research Center at the University of California at Davis, told Reuters.
