Released Pet Goldfish Growing Huge, Impacting Water Quality
Officials are reminding the public that goldfish are actually a threat to the environment.
Some goldfish found in Burnsville, Minnesota are the size of a football.
They were found in a lake during a water quality survey.
Burnsville officials say releasing your pet goldfish into ponds and lakes is a bad idea because they can grow bigger than you think.
They also contribute to poor water quality by mucking up the bottom sediments and uprooting plants.
