The fish was found by researchers doing a population survey of animals in a lake, located in a park in South Carolina county.

Anyone missing their goldfish? This 9lb goldfish was found in Oak Grove Lake during some recent testing at our lakes. The work included electrofishing, a method of measuring the health of the fish population.
