Ornamental Fish

Sri Lanka is home to a total of 111 ornamental fish species living in fresh, brackish and marine water habitats, which makes the country one of the most sought-after aquarium fish exporter destinations to the world. The ornamental fish industry in Sri Lanka has a history of nearly 100 years when a group of hobbyists and collectors started exploring and discovering exotic fish varieties in the rivers, lagoons, and marine habitats around the country. Yet, the rise of conservatism and the urge for sustainable breeding and harvesting practices in the global ornamental fish industry, as well as the introduction of local laws and regulations to curb destruction of habitats and breeding populations of rare and threatened exotic fish species, has driven the ornamental fish industry in Sri Lanka to a new direction, compelling them to take steps on sustainable harvesting and breeding.
