Goldfish WILD OLIVACEOUS COLORATION

 

Goldfish are found worldwide, having been introduced either intentionally or unintentionally as ornamental display fishes. Over several generations, wild goldfish lose their bright ornamental colors and revert to a dark metallic bronze coloration.  Goldfish have no barbels, a trait that helps distinguish them from koi.  They can reach several pounds in weight, and can be caught on a variety of small lures and baits.

Catching Goldfish was a lot of fun even back in the day. I grew up on the storm water retention pond in the background of this pic. The pond had bullheads and goldfish and that was pretty much it. And later on in life I bought my first home with a retention pond in the backyard. And it had goldfish in it too. Goldfish are sweet!
