Here we see the rare albino goldfish, a true delicacy to nobody, ever.

Can we ask you a question first? Do you really want to eat your goldfish? Yes? Okay, let's dive right in then. Yes, you can eat your goldfish. Now let's discuss what will happen if you choose this path. Besides the wrath of the household pet gods when you least expect it.

Goldfish are as edible as any other freshwater fish. If you choose to eat it, know these facts first:

  • That gross flake and/or pellet stuff is what your fish has been eating exclusively. Pop a pellet or two, that's what your fish will most likely taste like.
  • Goldfish, like any fish born and raised in captivity, really should be cooked before eating. And if you're a kind, albeit weird person, you'll off it as humanly as possible before it hits the pan.
  • Here is a recipe for sushi rice. Do it, add insult to injury. 

Run, be free. We were talking to your dog, not you.
