When ever we catch them, we throw them in the garbage bag.

Better to keep saying it as some people out there need to hear it 100 times.

I dont think I would ever want to try eating them, but maybe we'll find a you tube post on the subject one day.

Eating Goby !!
Goby Treats!
Goby Fritz !

Researchers believe the round goby is linked to outbreaks of botulism type E in Great Lakes fish and fish-eating birds.

The disease is caused by a toxin that may be passed from zebra mussels, to goby, to birds, resulting in large die-offs of fish and birds


They feed aggressively on insects and other small organisms found on lake and river bottoms. Adult round goby eat large quantities of zebra and quagga mussels, and occasionally small fish and fish eggs.

Their aggressive eating habits and ability to spawn several times each season have helped them multiply and spread quickly.


In less than a decade the round goby has successfully spread through all five Great Lakes and has begun to invade inland waters.


IMO : Catch'm,,,, kill'm,,, Burn'm

They carry so many toxins that not even the birds can eat them.

After reading the article I think the gobys were introduced to fight zebra mussels by authorities... it is conspiracy... the project went out of hands.

Nope, they came together from the same Black Sea in the ships ballast tanks.
