Giant goldfish have mysteriously found their way into America’s Lake Tahoe.

Goldfish weighing as much as 4kg  and measuring up to 50cm in length have recently been caught in Tahoe, which straddles the California-Nevada border.

Lake Tahoe is America’s second-deepest lake and the number of large goldfish is causing a problem with many native fish in the lake, alarming researchers and raising questions about the invasive species’ long-term effects.

“These fish are competing with the native fish, and that’s a big part of the problem,” said Heather Segale, spokeswoman for the Tahoe Environmental Research Center.

A project to catch the goldfish has begun which involves electrocuting the fish. This method has rid the lake of 50 to 60 goldfish a year since 2011.
