Going after illegal fish

Probably the folks at the big-box store who put up a sign encouraging customers to buy goldfish for their outdoor ponds didn't know this was illegal. At least that's what state biologist Bob Van Riper surmises.

But the sign that was taken down when a game warden explained the law shows folks don't know. Goldfish, koi and other tropical fish are not allowed to be dumped in a backyard pond or any pond. It's illegal. In fact, a week ago Van Riper chased down a half-dozen ponds filled with goldfish.
