We are a UK based ornamental fish welfare group aiming to raise awareness and promote best practice in aquatics and the fishkeeping hobby.
Speaking of updates, as of spring 2013 we’ve added a new section, Beginner’s Guides, where we’ll be providing information aimed at helping newcomers to the hobby avoid some of the common pitfalls. Even if you’re a seasoned keeper why not have a read as well, you never know, you might find something new to you too.
If you’re a beginner don’t be afraid to look around our other articles too; as part of our aim to raise awareness in the hobby it’s important to us that newcomers take some time to think about some of the issues that affect the hobby.
- Raising awareness of issues within the fishkeeping hobby
- Educating fishkeepers to provide better care for their fish
- Reduce demand for unsuitable products/species/practices
Promoting best practice
- Encourage the industry to self regulate
- Reduce the amount of unsuitable aquatic products for sale
- Reduce the availability of unsuitable species
The future …
The INJAF site is growing, it’s no longer the fry it started out as, but it’s still got a way to go.
Over the next few days, weeks, months and yes, years we’ll be adding to the site and updating our information. If you have anything you’d like to talk to us about please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org If we’ve made any errors please point them out and if you have any additional information or more details on anything we’ve covered please let us know.
As of spring 2013 we are looking for aquatic conservation projects to feature so please let us know if you’re involved with something we could help raise awareness of. We’re pleased to report that our first conservation article is now online.
