Holy Pickerel!  

Maine Today is reporting that state wildlife officials shocked and netted a three-pound koi (Cyprinus carpio) in Pickerel Pond last week. The fish was just one of at least two individuals spotted in the pond earlier this summer. No one knows how the koi got there, but faithful ISW readers and those Mainers in the know will recognize this as the very same pond whose claim to fame is the first and so far only occurrence of the invasive aquatic plant hydrilla in the state of Maine. What's next, snakeheads :-)?
