OATA Care Guide: Turtles & Terrapins

 OATA The Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association

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.

OATA produce a good range of free care sheets for coldwater, tropical freshwater and marine fish as well as for invertebrates, aquatic reptiles and plants.

The term terrapin comes from a native American Indian name for a small aquatic turtle. It covers all freshwater turtles. The most commonly encountered aquatic reptiles seen in the trade are grouped into sliders and cooters. Both have similar husbandry requirements, but reach quite different sizes.
