Bid to curb sale of 'tankbusters'
THE curator of Bristol Aquarium is joining forces with experts from across Europe to help spearhead a campaign to highlight the growing problem of so called "tankbusting" fish species.
The aim of the Big Fish campaign is to lessen the number of large tropical and marine fish species which have to be rehomed every year by public aquariums and zoos after being sold as pets.
Formed by the public aquariums themselves, and supported by many industry experts and hobbyists, the Big Fish Campaign was forged through concern over the high number of large fish species which are sold and then later have to be rehomed when they have outgrown their owners' tanks.
Bristol Aquarium curator Dan de Castro joined marine experts at a special meeting held at the Zoological Society of London to agree ways to tackle the problem.

"We are already talking to the larger pet store chains and have had some very positive responses from them," said Mr de Castro.
"One has definitely confirmed they are on board and we are very hopeful that nine more will join them over the coming months. We have also had interest from further afield."
