Pacu caught in Lake St. Clair

I'm still in an "I can't be all DOOM all the time" mood, so here is a weird local biodiversity story.  WXYZ reports in Husband and wife reel in Piranha looking fish at Lake St. Clair.

For people interested in a text version, click on the Detroit Free Press article Fish caught in Lake St. Clair looks like piranha, but it's no man-eater.  As the headline states, it may look like a piranha and it is related to the notorious predator, but it's a vegetarian.  Still, it does not belong in the wild here.  Fortunately, pacu will not survive a normal winter in Michigan.
