There are goldfish the size of dinner plates turning up in Alberta, biologists say

Aquatic invasive species are a problem in Alberta's water bodies, according to biologists. Not only are zebra mussels an issue, but there are also issues with invasive fish, such as goldfish and carp, in lakes and ponds. As explained in this article from The National Post, invasive fish species have been found in northern and southern parts of the province. The provincial government will be launching a new campaign to educate the public about the dangers of releasing non-native fish species into the environment.
