Surrey-based fancy goldfish specialist Star Fisheries is holding its first Open Day of the season on Sunday, October 16, with some very special fish — all available to purchase on the day.
Andy Green of Star Fisheries tells us: "This long awaited Open Day promises to be the very best yet. We will have fish for sale from China, Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Indonesia and of course UK-bred fish. We will be offering the largest selection of fancy goldfish for sale in Europe with many truly amazing varieties, some of which have never been seen in the UK. We will also have some extra special Jumbo fancy goldfish, the size of which has never made UK shores before. From the very small right the way through to the larger sizes, we will have something for the fancy goldfish hobbyist, breeder or show exhibitor.
"Alongside the above line-up we will be offering 'The Andrew James' selection of Ranchu, from the best Ranchu breeder in Europe. These fish are very high quality fish and this year we will have some youngsters with enormous potential for sale as well as some larger quality fish.
"Come along and see this truly amazing fancy goldfish spectacle — and the best bit is that all the fish on show are for sale on the day!"
Star Fisheries will be open on October 16 from 10am–3pm. You can find it at 94A Benhill Road, Sutton, Surrey, SM1 3RX. Tel 0208 915 0455.
