Extinction means not only the loss of biodiversity, but also the decrease of our business line.
Protection of the environment and preservation of the species are our primary concerns.
In order to reach sustainable development goals, we have self-imposed regulations on our catch. Firstly, we limit fishing equipment to one, small, hand-held net per person. Casting nets and other mass catching equipment, including electric shocks and the use of any kind of chemicals, are prohibited. Also, we do not catch juvenile fish or females brooding eggs.
We are also artificially breeding endangered species that are on the Red List, such as Cambaoides japonicus, on a trial basis.
These regulations have enabled us to continue the aquarium fish business for more than 20 years.
