Monster Gold Fish Invade Lake Tahoe [VIDEO]

It sounds like a movie you might see at 3am on the SciFi channel, but giant goldfish are invading Lake Tahoe. You heard the news of a man catching a giant goldfish in Michigan earlier this year, but now there are reports of anglers catching goldfish in Lake Tahoe.

According to the Huffington Post

The mega-goldfish — which can grow to be almost 1.5 feet long — are not native to the lake and may have been dumped there by aquarium owners.

However, the goldfish seem to be thriving and are said to be breeding at a rather quick pace. Experts now worry that the invasive species could adversely impact the Lake Tahoe ecosystem.

“We know that we have a giant goldfish, the question now becomes how long has it been there and how many others are there in the lake?” Dr Sudeep Chandra, an associate professor at the University of Nevada, Reno, told KCRA.
