Talking about fish, also from Practical Fishkeeping:

Aquatic retailers may be trading in a fish that has been illegal to sell without authorisation since the 1970s; shops or fishkeepers caught using the species for commercial purporses without certificates risk £5000 fines for each specimen and/or up to five years in prison.

Practical Fishkeeping can exclusively reveal that retail outlets in the UK may have offered one of the world’s most endangered fish, Probarbus jullieni (the Isok barb), for sale to the public in recent months.
