World’s first goldfish beauty contest held in China where 3,000 fish competed

London: Tiaras and sashes were replaced by shiny scales and super strong fins at the world’s first beauty contest for goldfish in China. It has been revealed that more than 3,000 fish from 14 different countries competed in the newly established International Goldfish Championships held in Fuzhou at the weekend. Breeders battled it out for a range of different titles, with the World Goldfish Queen crown being the most fiercely contested category. Lined up on rows of tables in giant bowls, the ornamental fish were judged across 12 categories including the longest and heaviest goldfish. “We judge goldfish mainly by five criteria: breed, body shape, swimming gesture, colour, which is very important, and overall impression,” Metro.co.uk quoted Ye Qichang, a member of the judge panel, as saying. The judge was particularly impressed with a giant 1.75kg prized specimen fish competing in the competition.
