More On Goldfish

Seems Indiana is not the only state having problems with burgeoning wild goldfish (Cyprinus auratus) populations. The Baltimore Sun is reporting that there are about 50 large goldfish now residing in a pond in Sewells Orchard Park in that state. There is a grassroots effort underway to contain the problem by netting the goldfish (with adoption likely for the ones they catch). The story also contains an update for a story posted on the ISW last year about using bass to control the goldfish.
