I have a book about manitoba's freshwater fish and I was looking through it and guess what I found! Goldfish! The picture showed what looked like a greyish silver common. Apparently they live in some rivers here. It said that way back some aquarium goldfish were released by europeans so now theres wild goldfish. It said that if u were to bring them inside into an aquarium they will turn gold!

That's why it's illegal to release goldfish into lakes and streams. They will survive and breed.

:exactly Our Australian Native fish have to compete with wild godfish, hence the decline in our native fish populations in some areas of Australia

Once when Larry and I were walking in the park, we went down by the river and there was this ENORMOUS fish stuck on the shore. It was dead when we found it, but we rolled it back into the river anyway. It looked like a giant silver colored carp. But that's the only one I've ever seen.

It would be neat if it was a goldie. I had never seen one that big before...

there was an article about a state in the USA that your not allowed to own Koi cause of people dumping them in to lakes. Here in Ca you can have ferrets due to the fact students would dump them off in the fields and then the population went crazy :(
