For those who are into breeding perhaps a documentary on how the Chinese technique in breeding would provide further insights inside and behind the Great Wall biggrin.gif

hey goldrush, u should translate each and every single one of those videos mate. It's like torture for me not knowing what they're saying. Maybe only key points or summary? Please? tongue.gif
desireless
Now we question the local safety regulation of restricting 4ft tank and below imposed on aquatic hobbyists staying in buildings biggrin.gif Since they can have fresh water tanks built on top of flats.... Perhaps I can rent one small corner for my goldfishes shiok.gif Anyone working in town council? happydance1.gif

But I believe the images are enough to stimulate your imagination and leave you breathless at times despite the language barrier.

hey Doc,

Fastastic video! good_very.gif
Very good documentation about general Goldfishes!
It's only a pity that these Chinese videos do not come with translation for our International friends in RG.

Oh yes, it is a pity these videos are in chinese. Before any translation done, I guess they'll just have to enjoy the beautiful goldfishes first. tongue.gif


Hi simliangyi,

Unfortunately, I am not allowed to teach you how to download videos from such websites. If a website allows users to download videos from its database then there will always be a "download video" link. Unfortunately video downloading is purposely restricted for such video broadcast websites. But you can google for this and you can find many useful programs that will help you download videos from such websites. And there is even a website that help you download such videos online, by just pasting the video page URL good_very.gif For Mozilla Firefox users, there's a plug-in available for such purpose. But do take note that the videos are all compressed to the lowest quality possible. That's all I can say. wink.gif

K, i understand something cannot said online.. haha.. ok, i will try to go search for the software. thanks anyway bro. Appreciate your help... good_very.gif
The Matrix
most of the goldfish programs are from CCTV7 . The one right above about 280Mb in size for mpg format and some other links are around 20-100Mb in size and rmvb or avi version. Some of the tv programs actually quite old, several years back when I got them. unless u ask the originator for the dtv recording then will get the real big size format.

Just watch from You-Tube lah.
acurrent
damn.....on the rooftop video the guy says he sells the big goldfish for 40 yuan and exports (US, Aus etc) mainly small fish because overseas like em cheaper. Bet he doesn't know those small fish retail for 10X the price he sells his big fish.
bekko
That's pretty interesting acurrent. Does he say how much he receives for the small export fish? Wish I could understand the whole clip.

Be not be surprised by the price quoted in Mainland China as compared to what is quoted in your respective country.Your fish would have to cross the Atlantic/Pacific before reaching your shores.In the process,it could have crossed a few hands....wholesalers,holding areas,transit stops etc.With every stops come the inevitable of cost increase due to overheads,rentals,insurance,loss,bidding,middleman fees, etc .

You may feel sour over the price being quoted at times but I hope the bitterness subside when all these factors are taken into consideration. biggrin.gif

I'd say not much, the big sized fish would retail in Aus from about $60 - $120 which would equal to about 800yuan, he sells for 40yuan.

off the top of my head i can think of quite a few costs involved - the exporter, the importer, the international transportation. Most of the imports go to Melbourne(the wholesaler) then retailers in sydney buy which is more interstate tranportation, quarantine, fish deaths illnesses and warehousing costs. I can see how the costs add up but 20fold in price is hard 2 swallow :sad
bekko
For ornamental fish sold in the US, the norm is a 6 to 10-fold increase between a farmer and the retail shopper.

farmer -> broker -> colsolidator/shipper -> wholesaler -> retailer -> hobbyist

Everyone sells for about 150% of their purchase price plus shipping.

Haha... exactly. I have been to a couple of chinese forums and it happens too often that someone would show a good fish and state that he had paid about 10 CNY (Chinese yuan, 2SGD, 1.5AUD). I would shake my head and think to myself "That would have easily fetched 50-80 SGD here in Singapore" hmm.gif

Apart from those transport costs, tarrifs, etc, most part of price hike is done at the retail front. What concerns a LFS most, is of course the overhead of the shop.

Talking about this, some hobbyists might not know that there is always this unspoken rule of "first-pick" price. In a bag of 20 fishes, there are probably only 1-2 pieces that are really lookable and one would pay his money for. So if you are the one who gets to pick first from a single new shipment, you'll have to pay for more than the intended price tag. LFS term this as the "鱼头价" or loosely translated as the "fish head price". The reason for this is that, after the first guy picks (he'll probably have picked the best ones), there is high chance that the remaining ones will be left unsold for a long time. LFS would need to cut such loses by charging more on this person who first picked (with assumption that he chose the best ones). It is kind of common sense biggrin.gif - Just for info only.
