A number of Practical Fishkeeping readers around the world are now actively working to get their local aquatic shops to sign up to the Practical Fishkeeping Dyed Fish Campaign.

Our global campaign against the sale of dyed fish is asking all aquatic retailers, wholesalers and importers to sign our pledge not to stock dyed fish.

With the help of PFK readers around the world we believe we can dramatically reduce the number of fish sold, and therefore decrease the number of fish that are cruelly injected with dye.

Those shops who sign our pledge agreeing not to stock dyed fish will receive a poster to display in their shop, and we'll print their names in the magazine and on the website.

We know from our recent survey that nearly 90% of PFK readers would choose to buy fish their from dealers who pledge not to stock dyed fish, so it's in their interests to take part.

Our 1996 Dyed Fish Campaign led to a dramatic decrease in the number of dyed fish on sale.

We are urging all fishkeepers to encourage their retailer to sign up.
