Market Report Description

The Latin America, Middle East and Africa Ornamental Fish Market would witness market growth of 9.8% CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2028).

The wide variety of fish, invertebrates, plants and live rock accessible to aquarium hobbyists can easily overwhelm them, leaving them forgetting about their source and method of collection. Even though many species in the hobby have been cultivated and grown on farms, it is imperative to note that many species are also sourced from the wild and are not in infinite supply.

The great majority of aquarium decorative fish is farm-raised and come from freshwater. Ornamental fish are mostly cultivated in Florida in the United States. Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, China, Malaysia, and Japan are among the countries that have long specialized in the breeding and propagation of freshwater ornamental fish. The cultivation of ornamental fish has recently relocated to areas near consumer hubs.

Aquarium fish keeping is a growingly popular hobby that has resulted in ornamental fish being exported in over 125 countries around the world in recent years. The bulk of ornamental fish come from developing countries, most of which are in tropical and sub-tropical climates. The ornamental fish business is estimated to include approximately 2500 species, with freshwater ornamental fish accounting for 60% of the total. Marine ornamental fish account for over 15% of the ornamental fish market in terms of value, with 98 percent of these fish being wild-caught.

The ornamental sector in South Africa is still in its youth, with relatively low domestic production volumes. The local market is dependent on imported ornamental fish due to insufficient supply.

There are currently no recognized marine ornamental providers in South Africa, indicating a market vacuum. South Africa is now producing freshwater ornamental fish, although the supply is restricted, relying on local markets and retailers in Gauteng and KwaZulu Natal.
