Gone Fishin'

News 10 Now has an article and video about burgeoning populations of round gobies (Neogobious melanostomus) in the St. Lawrence River. There are so many gobies around New York's section of the river that at a recent game fishing competition, less than 50% of the teams caught their goal: walleyes (Stizostedion vitreum). The other teams caught nothing but gobies. Scientists are worried that fishermen might be spreading the gobies around from their bait buckets.
