Sparkling fish, murky methods: the global aquarium trade – by Simon Hines
The world trade in aquariums is a trade that’s increasingly inhumane and unfair. The trade has been growing almost every year for over 30 years. The world is now home to a huge number of aquariums, and many are in poor condition. They are also being used as breeding or commercial farms. A lot of the fish are bred for the pet trade, and many are bred to be show fish. This means that most of the aquariums are not being properly maintained, are full of pollutants, and are not being treated properly to maintain their health for the owner. These fish are commonly kept in very small homes, and some have been kept there for many years with the same fish (or a set of fish) in the same tank.
The number of aquariums in the world is currently estimated at more than 2 million. The first aquarium was built in 1969, and the modern aquarium began to see its start in the late 1980s. The growth of aquaria has been spurred by a growing concern for the protection of marine life, as well as a growing awareness of the environmental problems caused by the over-harvesting of fish and crustaceans. The growing number of aquariums has also given rise to a rise of many different species and ecosystems. Some of the reasons for this growth include:
The world’s aquaculture and fish trade has resulted in the depletion of fish stocks. Some of the most important fish species (such as sharks) are overfished, and this leads to the degradation of the oceans. The overfishing of fish and crustaceans leads to the death of large numbers of fish every year. The demand for pet fish and ornamental fish is still increasing at a fantastic rate, and the species being bred for the pet trade are becoming increasingly scarce and endangered.
The problem of pollution in aquaria is a major problem, and many more species are facing the same problems. Many fish species are not able to swim or live in open water. This has led to the pollution of water by pesticides, drugs, chemical pollutants and other unwanted waste.
