Ornamental fish business in Thailand continue to be steadily growing.     High quality fish has been produced facilitated by richness of natural resources and traditional experience. Some three thousands families are involved in fish production in the country with the hobbyists increasing becoming interested in supporting the industry.      Marine ornamental fish species are produced by artificial breeding in the government facility. In the recent past, aquarium plant industry has evolved using mass propagation culture technique in the laboratory also helping conserve the wild type.      The Department of Fisheries is directly involved in promoting the ornamental fish business to reach at a superior quality of the product.

     Freshwater ornamental fish are originally collected from the wild and cultured in the aquarium.      More than three hundred different species such as shark, barb, Siamese fighting fish, catfish, goldfish, scarventure, eel, loach, rasbora, gourami, botia, knife fish, brackish, oscar, discus, livebearers and carp have been bred by the big family farms.      More recently, African and American cichlids began to become available to dealers and hobbyist.    The number of these new species that have been discovered and imported to Thailand is around two hundred fifty species. Almost all of them are now being successfully bred and being exported mainly from the central part of the country.
     More than hundred native species of marine aquarium fish are now available. Most are caught from the seashores of Phuket and Rayong provinces and some are imported from Philippines and Indonesia.      The Department of Fisheries at Krabi brackish water station recently succeeded in artificial breeding of nine species. These include silver angle (Monodactylus argentus), batfish (Platax orbicularis), and seven anemone fish species of clown (Amphiprion ocellaris), clark (A. clarkii), sebae (A. sebae), saddleback (A. polymnus), yellow skunk (A. akallopsos), tomato (A. frenatus), saddleback (A. ephippium).
