“THE BIG­GEST ONE

Was the size of a din­ner plate.”

Canadian Geographic - - WILDLIFE -

Kate Wil­son, an aquatic in­va­sive species spe­cial­ist with Al­berta En­vi­ron­ment and Parks, de­scribes to the Ed­mon­ton Jour­nal the size of a gold­fish pulled from a Fort Mcmur­ray stormwa­ter pond in 2014. The num­ber of the fish turn­ing up in the province this year prompted it to launch a cam­paign to raise public aware­ness about in­va­sive aquatic species. Gi­ant gold­fish have also been found in Toronto’s wa­ters.
