Helsinki- For one goldfish in Norway, it's almost like being a fish out of water.

The goldfish in question is being held at a police station in the northwestern town of Bodo while officers try to track down its owner, according to Norwegian news agency NTB.

NTB says officers found the goldfish in a jam jar at the Nordlandshall indoor soccer stadium and decided to take it back to the police station because they couldn't find the owner.

Ina Selfors, spokesperson for the Nordland police district, told NTB that somebody likely had bought the goldfish and taken it to the stadium and forgot it there.

Selfors says she hopes the owner will contact them, adding that until then the fish "will stay in the jam jar and keep us company."
