Family: Ijams Wild Families: Goldfish Roundup 

When:  Saturday, March 3rd, 2pm-5pm
Where: Ijams Nature Center / 2915 Island Home Ave. Knoxville 

Goldfish make great pets, but they are considered an invasive species to our East Tennessee ecosystem. When non-native species are released at the nature center, they can wreak havoc on the environment. These goldfish can spread disease and parasites, which can decimate native aquatic species. Invasive fish also can take over food, nesting, and shelter resources, which can have disastrous effects on the pond ecosystem.

That’s where you come in! Ijams Nature Center is hosting a Goldfish Roundup in order to find these fish a new home. Bring your family and friends to catch your new family pet. They will provide bait, nets, and a little coaching for participants. Feel free to catch and take as many as you like. If you do not wish to take a Goldfish home, that’s okay! Still come out and catch as many as you can. We will find homes for the other fish. Right now the most important thing is to catch as many as possible and remove them from the pond.
