South wales fish rescue is a non profit organisation, which relies on volunteers and donations of materials and food from local company's for free advertising on this site and any site that is connected to south wales fish rescue.
Our service is free and all fish are transported humanely and are given a good home for life with us. we do not adopt out or make any money from adopting out.
We also rescue freshwater river fish, and fish from old quarrys,( if it is a freshwater we save it)
When fish are rescued they will be posted on this site, so the owner can see the fish in their new home and know they are safe and well.
If you have any fish items to donate i.e ( pipe, food, tanks, pumps, pond plants, pond lining, nets, or anything you may have that can be used for freshwater fish. please contact us through email or phone or on our contact us page,

PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTINUING
THIS SITE IS NOW ONLY A BLOG TO OUR RESCUE AND ALL MEMBERSHIP WILL NOW TAKE PLACE ON OUR FORUM BELOW .
check out our new forum at http://swfr.icyboards.net/ for adoptions of pond and tropical cold/warm, salt/fresh, chat, help, and much more.
unfortunately we have had to split the site to accommodate our forum so we use this main site as our blog and our forum is for chat and posting and fish that need adopting uk wide, we are sorry for the inconvenience but it was the only way we could make space for both forum and blog.
We now rescue freshwater tropical in the south wales area, due to limited space. please contact us before dropping off any fish so we can make sure we have the correct space and community for them.
The aim of the Big Fish Campaign is to raise awareness about the problem of aquarium fish that grow larger than the vast majority of home aquaria can accommodate, and to promote responsible buying and selling of these larger species.
The campaign will be focusing on a positive approach, including:
raising awareness throughout the hobby and aquatic trade about the extent of the problem
dispelling the myth that fish only grow to a size relative to the tank size (!)
asking retailers to sell larger fish responsibly by providing information on realistic adult sizes of these species
encouraging wholesalers and retailers not to routinely stock the "worst offenders" such as Pacu and Pangasius catfish - and instead concentrate on the hundreds of more suitable aquarium fish available to the hobby!
It is not the aim of the campaign to ban certain fish from sale, or push for restrictive licensing – quite the opposite in fact: it is hoped that a more responsible attitude from fishkeepers, retailers and wholesalers/importers will help to prevent the need for future legislation.
