Hi guys,

I'm doing an essay at the moment on aquarium fish and whether they should be caught in the wild or captively bred. I was hoping that you could fill in my 3 question questionnaire to shed some light on your opinion and what guidelines you think we should follow.
Here is the link for the questionnaire: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GTHLH7M

Thanks!

Thank you soooooo much guys!

I am chuffed with the amount of people who responded and filled in the questionnaire. These responses are going to be extremely helpful in concluding my essay and I can't thank you enough.

I'll keep you posted on how the essay when in terms of grades. :)
