Goldfish Society of Great Britain

The Goldfish Society of Great Britain (GSGB) was formed in 1948. We are a Society that welcomes members who are either new to the interesting hobby of keeping Fancy Goldfish or are hobbyists who have bred and shown their fish. For those new to the hobby, or thinking about starting to keep fish, the Society offers information, support, and help where required. As a member you will receive four Newsletters per year, access to a Members' on-line Discussion Group, one-to-one advice and support. In addition, when current restrictions allow, there will be annual Spring Conventions with good quality speakers and an Autumn Show where the best fish in Britain can be seen and the chance to show your own fish, whether you have bred them or reared them. From time to time there will be one-off events such as meetings and ‘Growing-On’ challenges where members can take a fish donated by Star Fisheries to grow on and compare at a later date against other members taking part in this challenge. 


Applications for membership can be via this site but for additional information please email

This is a great opportunity for Members to be given a fish by Andy Green and to take part in a ‘challenge’ to grow it the best way you can. After an agreed time all the fish given to Members will be judged in terms of growth, colour and deportment with a prize given to the winner. Those wishing to take part should express an interest to Andy by the 1st April. 

For more details log on to the Members Only part of the GSGB website.

This website is a new website to reflect the GSGB under new ownership. It’s at an early stage in its development and will be enhanced over time. We ask you to bear this in mind and to keep looking at it to see how both the website and the Society is modernising and developing to help you, the Fish-keeper and Hobbyist.


Goldfish Varieties

The varieties of the Fancy Goldfish can be divided into two categories - single tail and those with a twin tail.



We would like to offer you the chance to join one of the oldest and largest Fancy Goldfish clubs in the World. 



GSGB members can look forward to increased information through the Newsletter
