SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Researchers are concerned about a fish that’s turning into a new threat to the ecology of Lake Tahoe.
Biologists with the University of Nevada, Reno say they’re finding a growing number of giant goldfish in the lake.
While officials have been working for years in trying to keep the lake’s water crystal clear, researcher Sudeep Chandra told KCRA-TV (http://bit.ly/Yo0lIn ) the discovery of the goldfish is particularly worrisome because goldfish eat a lot and excrete “lots of nutrients.”
