CNN, May 6, 2015 (emphasis added): A smallmouth bass that was pulled out of the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania had a large cancerous tumor protruding from its jaw… an unusual and worrisome development. “Cancerous growths and tumors on fish are extremely rare in Pennsylvania and throughout the U.S…” the commission said in a statement… “As we continue to study the river, we find young-of-year and now adult bass with sores, lesions and more recently a cancerous tumor…” said John Arway, the executive director of the commission.

FOX 43, May 5, 2015: This is the only documented case of this type of tumor being found on small mouth bass in Pennsylvania… biologists continue to find sores and lesions on young-of-year bass during late spring and early summer surveys at alarming rates.

FOX 43, May 5, 2015: A smallmouth bass with a big tumor on its lip… tested positive for cancer. The commission says it’s rare but anglers aren’t surprised. Jacob Myers and his family have been fishing on the Susquehanna river for decades. He joked about the abnormalities in the fish he’s caught over the years. “You know, we’re just waiting to catch one with 3 eyes,” said Myers.. [The bass] may look surprising to some, to anglers, unfortunately, it’s normal.
