Perthnow: World’s longest goldfish caught in Joondalup’s Blue Lake by aquatic biologist Dr Dulana Herath

In a groundbreaking discovery at Perth’s Blue Lake, aquatic biologist Dr. Dulana Herath from Pases Aqua reeled in the world’s longest goldfish, measuring an impressive 52cm, surpassing the previous record by 4.6cm. This enormous specimen, caught as part of wetland restoration efforts, highlights the ecological challenges posed by goldfish in urban lakes. Dr. Herath’s secretive work to remove predator species from Perth’s waterways aims to address issues such as disruption of plant life, algal blooms, and disease transmission.
