Show winning fish
Bradford & District Aquarist Society held the first fish show of the year on May 14, at Bradford Academy in Yorkshire.
This year it saw 235 entries to the Open Show and an auction audience of more than 80 visitors.there are additional celebrations this year for the BDAS because this is the society’s 70th anniversary.
Roy Blackburn of Castleford AS won Best Fish in Show, just as he did at last year’s show — and with the same fish — an Asian catfish, Leiocassis hosii. The difference was that this year he also won Best Exhibit with his Banjo catfish in Pairs!
