Gold Fish

We follow a team of ODFW fish biologists as they try to stop one of the state’s most destructive invaders – gold fish. It turns out that the harmless gold fish most of us had as pets are far from harmless. In fact, if gold fish find their way into Central Oregon’s Crane Prairie reservoir, they could spread throughout the upper Deschutes watershed and destroy the region’s lucrative sport fishing economy.
