    No. Goldfish are freshwater fish, descended from Carp, a fish usually found in rivers and large lakes.

    Goldfish In The Sea

    You don't find goldfish in the wild unless they have been released they a bred from there 'cousins' carp to make them gold. Are you thinking of Finding Nemo he's a Clown Fish note the white stripes this is all i could think of why you would think that. Carp have also been bred to produce Koi carp by the Japanese. Goldfish are a big part of Oriental life. Carp live in lakes and probably rivers so i don't know but you my get some in the sea that can survive (because all rivers flow to the sea) but i doubt it. So goldies are FRESH WATER & COLDWATER. But at koi farms they chuck salt in every year to help clear disese so they can cope with a little salt. Hope this helps!

    Source(s): I have four goldies in my pond. Which defintly isn't salt water!

    Goldfish are originally from carp that lived in Asia. They are freshwater fish...they live in streams and lakes, not in the sea.

    This website below has more detailed information on where they come from.

    Nope - Goldfish populate lakes. That is, karp, and koi populate lakes. The smaller Goldfish live in lakes too, but most of them are bred within breeders, which are bred within tanks that they are sold in pet stores.

    No, goldfish are aquatic freshwater organisms. They are usually just kept in freshwater ponds and fishtanks/bowls.
