Invasive Species – A Threat to Lakes
Prussian Carp, a type of Goldfish, are a threat to water bodies in Alberta – including Gull Lake. Though they have apparently not been found in this lake to date, it may only be a matter of time.
Alberta Environment & Parks is telling the public, “Don’t Let It Loose”…
