Carrot is a carp and kawagoi hybrid that was released into the pond 20 years ago. In other words, although it is called a goldfish because of its goldfish-like color, it is actually a carp.

Just because it's easy to find doesn't mean it's easy to catch, but according to Hackett, 'It's a very difficult fish to catch, with few people catching it.' Mr. Hackett released his catch so that other anglers could try it.

As an example of the discovery of a genuine giant goldfish, a goldfish with a length of 1.5 feet (about 45 cm) and a weight of 4.2 pounds (about 2 kg) was captured by researchers in Lake

Goldfish in captivity don't get this big, but goldfish are tough fish that have been reported to live for 25 years in the wild and 5 months without oxygen. Goldfish can live in environments with little oxygen because they have the ability to breathe in a process like brewer's yeast fermentation that converts carbohydrates to alcohol. In addition to these abilities, goldfish are also highly fertile, so when goldfish are released into the wild, they quickly drive out native species.

Therefore, the official Twitter account of Burnsville, Minnesota, which has Keller Lake Park in the city, said, ``Please do not release pet goldfish into ponds and lakes. It will make things worse,” he said.
