Do you need a license to breed and sell fish UK?
You do not need a licence to sell a small number of offspring of pets that you’ve bred, for example as a hobby. You may need a licence if you do this frequently or with many animals.

Do you need a license to sell fish in Australia?
It is against the law to sell aquatic life without a licence. Aquaculturists are required to obtain a licence from the Department of Primary Industries (DPI), which is responsible for issuing licences for the sale of fish, shellfish, aquatic plants and other aquatic products.
DPI does not have the power to regulate the trade of aquatic animals. However, it is possible to apply for an exemption to the licence requirements, which can be granted by the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry.
Can I sell fish on Facebook?
Facebook has the power to connect you with people you might not otherwise meet. The ban of animal sales is one of the changes that have been made to the site. This is not the first time that Facebook has taken a stance against animal products.
Last year, the company announced that it would no longer allow the sale of shark fin soup in the United States. The move came in response to pressure from animal rights groups, who argued that the practice was cruel and unnecessary.
Can you sell fish for money?
Is it possible to make money breeding fish? Selling fish from home as a full-time job is not a very profitable venture, and most other careers can make you more money for the same amount of time and effort. Fish farms make very slim profits by selling their fish for less than a dollar a pound.
First, you have to be willing to put in the time to learn the ins and outs of the business. Second, it takes a lot of money to start a successful fish farm. Third, the fish you sell are not necessarily the best quality. You will find that the quality of your fish will vary from farm to farm and even from year to year.
The best way to find out if you are getting a good quality fish is to go to your local fish store and see what they have on the shelf. Look for fish that are of a higher quality than the ones you buy at the store. This will give you a better idea of what to look for in your next fish purchase.
