Definitely a bigtime proponent of at least, at minimum, having to pass some sort of test/take a class to be a fish owner.

Fish is a delicate pet that needs a responsible, intelligent person tending them.

Dumbest thing i've heard..

First off there are plenty of these "Fish keeping EXPERT hobbyist people" As so they would call themselves, that started off knowing as much as a 2 year old about fish keeping.

And classifying this hobby of keeping fish for intelligent people? I'm hoping is a joke? Because you give someone a 1, 2, 3 step anyone can create an aquarium as good and healthy as this "intelligent fish keeper"...

Its not about how smart you are to keep a fish.. Its about the willing to learn to keep the fish as close to its natural habitat as you can.. Because if you want to talk about inhumanity keeping fish in a 10/20 gallon tank there whole life is as inhumane as feeding guppies to oscars..

You're mean. And that last part is not correct. Tank can be a very nice place. Often it isn't.

Mmmmm... we're making lots of changes about stocked and introduced fish in our watersheds across the country.

I don't think that includes guppies in a tank though. We're talking more on the scale of trout and salmon.

I laughed so hard though... thanks!

I do know a couple communities in Manitoba have banned the import of shark fins for soup. Maybe that's it?

To be honest though, the peeps at the fish stores, local, home-grown, or the chains, have a tendency to not spread the right info. I was recently told at a LFS that 4 goldfish would be ideal for my 4gal biorb. Huh.

Sorry for posting twice in a row.

I just had to have a little look-see to see what I could find.

Turns out, in Saskatchewan, there was a very recent fish ban. The ban is on fish that tend to get released into the waterways and take over native species.

See: Saskatchewan bans invasive fish, crabs, snails - Saskatchewan - CBC News

BANNED IN SASKATCHEWAN
The complete list of banned species includes:

Northern snakehead
Channeled applesnail
Facet snail
Rusty crayfish
Freshwater jellyfish
Conrad's false mussel
Quagga mussel
New Zealand mud snail
Asian clam
Zebra mussel
Asian tapeworm
Spiny water flea
Fishhook water flea
Silver carp
Round goby
Chinese mitten crab

I don't think there's anything on there that should affect the vast majority of us. Although the Chinese mitten crabs are kind of cute.

It is true but should not affect the home fish keeper

Canadian Food Inspection Agency - Changes to the Health of Animals Regulations - Aquatic Animal Diseases

at least this is my interpretation of what I am reading.....

umm, check me if I'm wrong here but a TROPICAL fish stands about as much chance of surviving a Canadian Winter as I do of performing Gymnastics...

Some of the "Tropical" Species you see come from mountain area's and surprisingly cool waters. Also, as we all know from Guppies, or better (worse..either way) yet betas, some fish are remarkably adaptable. Alot of the fish bans are basically due to the fish in question starting to turn up in the local waters.

Although I think San Francisco was going to ban the sale of tropical fish in general due to "inhumane" treatment (Which in this case I think I read it specifically quoted uneducated fishkeepers). Of course, I may have misread or even be misremembering.
