Live fish fad slammed


Marine biologists in a Chinese city have condemned a fad among young
girls for wearing live fish as jewellery.

Teenage girls in Chengdu are queuing up to buy plastic pendants
containing the fish, reports West China City Daily.

Vendors say the fish can live up to three months in the sealed containers
which contain water, fish food and two solid oxygen balls.

After three months, they add that the fish can be released in ponds or
tanks by breaking open the pendants.

The fish ornaments, which cost about 20p each, are very popular among
girls as necklaces or bag decorations.

But an expert at the Sichuan Provincial Marine Life Research Center says
the practice is cruel and should be banned.
