Holy Sh*t or Bull Sh*t - Fish Racing

This week we've been asked if the story about US animal rights group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) calling for an end to Gold Fish racing is real or b.s.

Seriously, gold fish racing?

Apparently the latest craze said to be sweeping the USA's bars and pubs is goldfish racing and PETA are not happy about it. They say it places stress on the fish and is cruel, but is this just one big hoax? Is anyone actually trying to race goldfish?

Well it turns out that yes, there is actually a  watering hole called Coach's Bar and Grill in Albuquerque, New Mexico that is racing golfish and PETA are not happy about it! See the full story here:

FishMax does believe that beer and fish (and fishing) go together in dozens of combinations (beer battered whiting anyone?) but frankly, this seems to take it a bit far! Only in America!

If you have a fish or fishing story you've heard but don't know if its true or not, send it in to us at and we'll investigate!
