Goldfish Diary - China Wish

China Wish

T
he goldfish hobby is never complete with a "pilgrimage" to China - the motherland of the goldfish. In this issue, we update on our club's excursion to China - dubbed "China Wish" where we visited the China Aquaria 2006 and the farm tours in Guangzhou and Fuzhou.

The tour took lots of planning and was enjoyed with the company of our avid hobbyist friends from Indonesia, Malaysia and Hong Kong. It was an eye opening trip that enhanced our admiration of the profound skills and wisdom of the Chinese goldfish farmers. Today, modernization has moulded China immensely, but traditional methods of goldfish farming remains proven in this thousand-year old goldfish hobby.
