The Round Goby originates in the Caspian Sea and is thought to have hitch hick in the bilge of a ship into the Great Lakes. The fish was first reported in the Great Lakes in 1990 when one was found in the St. Claire River. The round goby appears to be making its way up the Rouge River in southeast Michigan, raising concerns among those working to improve the health of the waterway. A team on Friday, Nov. 23, 2012 found more than a dozen of the greedy predators while sampling sections of the Lower Rouge River in Inkster, said Sally Petrella of the nonprofit group Friends of the Rouge.
