Re: Now Never returned to the wild

Except now we have diseases from other continents introduced into North
American rivers, streams, and lakes, like ich, which originated in Asia.
These were via aquarium species released into the wild most likely, but any
fish that has been kept in an aquarium that was not properly sterilized (or
that had equipment, plants, gravel, hands, etc. that were not properly
sterilized introduced into it) and subsequently released into nature can
carry with it such a disease.
