The Big Fish
Campaign

The Big Fish Campaign helps home aquarium owners buy fish responsibly.

Did you know?

Did you hear that fish will only grow to a size relative to their tank? Don’t be fooled – it’s a myth!

 

Never buy a pet fish unless you are sure that you will be able to adequately house it when it is fully grown.

At Weymouth SEA LIFE Adventure Park we are proud to support The Big Fish Campaign. The campaign is all about educating our visitors on the issues surrounding the purchase of certain species of fish for home aquaria. Many commonly purchased species can very quickly outgrow a small tank… it’s a big problem!

 

In fact most of the enormous fish you can see in our largest Rainforest display were rehomed here at Weymouth. The campaign was created by dedicated Aquarists and Zoo keepers because every year Zoos and aquariums across the country are inundated with requests to rehome gianormous pets that have outgrown their tanks. We are simply running out of room to rescue all of the big fish out there.

 

The Big Fish Campaign aims to promote responsible buying and selling of these larger species of fish, including Gouramis, Catfish and Pacus!

 

Fun Fact

Gordon our Giant Gourami is just over 2ft. Despite his massive size and appetite Gordon doesn’t eat other fish for his dinner instead his favourite meal is bananas!
