Pet Glofish™ For Sale

Pet Glofish™ For Sale

The GloFish™ is a trademarked brand of fluorescent fish that was genetically modified with the purpose to detect environmental pollution. Scientists were able to inject a fluorescent protein gene (from marine organisms) into the embryos to create the glofish. There are no dyes or color injections into this fish. Successive offspring of the GloFish™ get the gene passed down to them from parents. They are still working on developing a fish to only fluoresce when in the presence of pollution and a portion of glofish sales goes to the advancement of this research. Although not originally developed for the ornamental fish trade, it is one of the first genetically modified animals to become publicly available. GloFish™ are sold only in the United States, where it remains the only genetically modified animal to be publicly available. The rights to GloFish™ are owned by Yorktown Technologies, the company that commercialized the fish.

To help further the research, a portion of the proceeds from sales of all GloFish™ goes directly to the lab where these fish were originally created. Illumination during daylight hours is important to reduce stress and disease, and it will also help you bring out the brightest possible color in your fluorescent fish. The light should not be left on throughout the night, however, as fish benefit from alternating periods of light and darkness, just like people.
