|---Chinese goldfish new era with 37.2cm length at application and over 40cm at present---|
a goldfish Bruce bred by Tung Hoi Aquarium Co., created a new world record
as the longest goldfish in the World Guinness Records.And soon it will take
ambassadorial duty to enjoy traveling around the world. Earlier, Bruce's
excellent performance has drawn the attention from all over the world and
Reuters, Yahoo, major TV, and Newspaper have made special reports for it.
Brother Chans, the owner of Bruce, introduced that the male Oranda is two years old and has 40cm length 2.8cm longer than that when application.
It is no doubt to say that the success completely depends on the innovated technology and persistent belief. At the beginning, we experienced failures but we never gave it up. "As to Bruce I prefer to say I am his coach", Mr. Louis Chan said excitedly:" the whole process of breeding was full of challenges and interests, because I had to make continuous researches including his genetic conditions and physical variations. And other things such as improving foods quality and adjusting his activity are entirely new to me. In my mind, there is a big ambition that I must breed him to be as strong as an athlete and to grow towards bigger, smarter and healthier.
However, quite a few goldfish hobbyists wonder why we didn't apply for the longest goldfish and the heaviest one as well since it is so long. To this question, Mr. Chan gave an explanation that there is a definite restriction to apply for heaviest animals so that it can avoid some appliers force animals heavier through over-feed. So the Guinness commission only accepts application for the longest one.
Mr. Chan also told us the story about the goldfish's name. Bruce is named after Bruce Lee, a well-known Chinese Kung-fu actor. Bruce Lee is a real hero whom all the Chinese are proud of. We sincerely hope that Bruce can recall every one worldwide that it is from China.
A professional from Hong Kong exclaimed that China is goldfish hometown. Pitifully, before 1980's last century foreign technology was more developed than us in the terms of breeding, cultivation, judgment and new variety development. In recent two decades, enterprising Chinese is making efforts to keep up with other countries . And we look Bruce as a representative of self-reliance and pursurance for better quality. The belief should be planted in every one of domestic goldfish industry so that Chinese goldfish can go out of China and attract more people abroad in coming future. Talking about his future, Mr. Louis Chan was so confident that he said: " I have a dream that one day I can breed a longest goldfish in the world . Now I made it. I also have another dream that I will challenge myself to breed a 45cm goldfish longer than present one in 2003 and break a new record. I believe we can lead Chinese goldfish industry to brighter future.
