OATA, the Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association, was set up in 1991 and throughout that time have represented the whole aquatic industry – from importers, manufacturers and wholesalers to retailers and pond and aquarium consultants.
The vast majority of fresh water fish offered in shops have been bred in captivity. Yet wild caught fish can add to the value and interest of the species available. Wild caught fish also help to provide livelihoods for families who collect them from the wild, and in turn will maintain these natural habitats to ensure the livelihoods of future generations.
