I'm curious on what could be released here pathogen wise?

In my case I was talking about say a park pond where koi are already present but as said this was a long time ago and so I'm curious on current thinking?

Google search "Flying Carp" and "Northern Snakehead" and you will understand why local officials are much more sensitive to invasive species now.
I know, when I heard put goldie in a pond I'm thinking a pond that is not connected to another body of water.

Truth be told, though, potatoes and largemouth bass are invasive species....

Thanks for this. I was thinking bacteria or something as well.

Yes, carp have made their way through QLD quite a bit here in Australia. I've no idea what they taste like (apparently muddy), the one time I suggested trying grandad just about keeled over and I got a 5 minute lecture.

It is illegal to release any aquarium fish into U.S. waters.

I think that the op meant either a decorative pond or a small one in a park not attached to any other body of water.

Except when the government does it to get rid of other aquarium species. And then those run rampant and more non native species are released. The gov is so smart and always know what they be doin!

Carp is nasty. It's not just the flavor, it's also the texture. Like mush. Mushy mud. >_<

Kentucky recently had a carp tournament with a $20,000 payout to the winner who caught the most. Our lakes are becoming overrun with them. They ended up catching a total of 40 tons, which isn't even a dent in the population.

On a side note, it's illegal to use Goldfish as Bait in Florida- But wow, you should see the size Bass people have caught using them. But a lot of folks doing that back in the 80's is why you see a lot of them in Florida's lakes/Golf Course ponds. I even saw some over in the Blue springs area off the St. Johns one time.
