According to a representative of a national park in Greenville County, a giant goldfish was found in a local lake when wildlife agencies were conducting a fish population survey. Tai Hawk, an employee at Greenville County Parks, said the “massive” fish swam in the 12-acre Oak Grove Lake pond.
Wildlife conservation officials conducted a fish population survey. Weak electric current passed through the water and stunned them for a few minutes so the experts could calculate the total number. The giant goldfish is the only one in the lake because the park experts did not meet others during the survey.
Although the goldfish is not a native of South Carolina, it was not considered an invasive species for the lake.
