As of April 2008, the largest goldfish in the world was believed by the BBC to measure 19 inches (48 cm), and to be living in the Netherlands. At the time, a goldfish named “Goldie”, kept as a pet in a tank in Folkestone, England, was measured as 15 inches (38 cm) and over 2 pounds (0. 91 kg), and named as the second largest in the world behind the Netherlands fish. The secretary of the Federation of British Aquatic Societies (FBAS) stated of Goldie’s size that “I would think there are probably a few bigger goldfish that people don’t think of as record holders, perhaps in ornamental lakes”. In July 2010, a goldfish measuring 16 inches (41 cm) and 5 pounds (2. 3 kg) was caught in a pond in Poole, England, thought to have been abandoned there after outgrowing a tank.
