French pet care firm stops selling fish bowls – they drive fish mad

A leading French aquarium vendor has decided to stop selling round fish bowls because they drive fish mad and kill them quickly.

“People buy a goldfish for their kids on impulse, but if they knew what a torture it is, they would not do it. Turning round and round in a small bowl drives fish crazy and kills them quickly,” AgroBiothers CEO Matthieu Lambeaux told Reuters.Gold fish can live up to 30 years and grow to about 25 cm in big aquariums or outdoor ponds, but in tiny bowls they often die within weeks or months.

He said gold fish are social animals who need the company of other fish, ample space and clean water, and that having an aquarium requires a minimum of equipment and expertise.France is Europe’s number one market for red aquarium fish, with about 2.3 million fish, Lambeaux said.
