Goldfishes are growing much larger in size in Burnsville city

The city of Burnsville in Minnesota asks residents to give their pet goldfish to a responsible friend instead of throwing it in a waterway as the goldfishes are growing much larger in size. The city has partnered with the city of Apple Valley and Carp Solutions to conduct a fish survey on Keller Lake to assess populations of invasive goldfish and other fish in the lake.

“Instead of releasing your pet goldfish in a local lake or pond, please consider other options for finding them a new home like asking a responsible friend or neighbor to care for it.” the city of Burnsville said in a Facebook post.
