The round goby is taking over large swaths of the Great Lakes and their connecting waters, according to scientists studying the invader. Gobies breed like rabbits and eat like pigs, causing profound changes at the base of a food chain that supports the Great Lakes $7 billion sport and commercial fisheries. New research conducted in Green Bay, Wis., found that gobies were hogging tiny aquatic organisms that other fish species need to survive.
