Invasive Species

ROUND GOBYS

My BIG inquiry question

Does the Round Goby affect other invasive species? And if so, how?

The Round Goby A.K.A Neogobius Melanostomus.

The Round Goby is a bottom dwelling invasive species.


They can spawn multiple times each spring without dying off, they eat zebra mussels and or fishes eggs, they are also commonly 30.5 centimeters long (that's just more then the length of a ruler!).
