San Francisco Banned From Selling Fish?

I have no idea how accurate this website is, but if you live in the bay area or San Francisco, you better check this out!

I've moved this thread to the lounge...


If this is true... the logic makes no sense. How would banning the sale of fish keep puppies and kittens from ending up in shelters? I honestly doubt this will actually go in to effect.

I heard they banned the sale of goldfish, which is what I thought they meant by banning some fish keeping.

I don't know how exactly this law would work, but it still has to go through the San Francisco Board for approval or something before it can take affect, let's just hope they look at the situation differently and come up with a better law or conclusion. Otherwise some LFS might go out of business there.

Yes, but I'm sure you can understand where it would be coming from with goldfish

How does this make sense to you?

Saving puppies and kittens by stopping the sale of goldfish? Makes absolutely no sense.

Not surprising since to you have to go thru an approval process to get an animal from a shelter and they'll even inspect your home, yard, etc before you can get OK'd for one in SF. SW fish/corals/etc will most likely be added to that list since so many are pulled from their natural habitat. Sad part is, homeless kids have no protection compared to a mutt from the pound, since anyone can have a kid.

Not the puppies and kittens part, but banning the sale of goldfish. (I'm not saying banning goldfish will help other animals. I'm saying banning the sale of goldfish makes sense)
