Goldfish, originating in China, are a traditional Chinese ornamental fish. Since their domestication in the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) they have been raised for nearly a thousand years, during which the Chinese have gained a wealth of experience and bred more than three hundred varieties. Goldfish in different counties of the world today were all directly or indirectly introduced from China.
Chinese Goldfish contains 164 colour plates and black-and-white pictures with a long descriptive essay. It recounts in detail the historical origin and development of goldfish, how to distinguish varieties and the pleasures of raising them. It also clearly explains how to propagate, select fry, tend, and prevent disease - important aspects of raising goldfish. The album will be very helpful to goldfish fanciers.
