No not all fish are imported.

This boy was gifted to me by a friend as I had stopped buying imports, I think all the travelling lowers their immune system.
There are a lot of betta breeders in the UK now so Ive started buying UK bred. I'm hopeing that as they were born here they will be more resilient and hopefully have a longer life span.

That's good news - it always makes me panic when any animal is shipped from outside the UK - I often wonder where they have taken them from (so to speak)

These fish are bred in Thailand and Indonesia and then shipped into the UK. They literally have 100s I jars not much bigger than a jam jar or milk bottle. Once they get to about 4 months old they go up for sale and can be shipped to a lot of countries
