Fair motto for 2016: "Knowledge protects animals"

Animals make people better. Whoever bring an animal home, must also assume responsibility. The pet must be humanely cared for and maintained even if you want to go on vacation. This is especially true for reptiles. More and more "compromised animals" such as giant snakes or iguanas in home and/or sanctuaries are abandoned somewhere. "Knowledge protects animals" is therefore the motto for this year's "Fisch & Reptil". Only those who are sufficiently informed about the nature and needs of the their new housemates before buying an animal, can better asses wither this really fits into their family and life. The "Reptilium Landau" and "Auffangstation für Reptilien" in Munich will bring their "Klassiker der Abgabe" to the exhibition stage and provide detailed information the most important considerations before purchasing an animal and the most common problems. An important aid for any animal purchasing decision so that the coexistence between humans and animals is truly a successful story as well.

A huge variety of ornamental fish, invertebrates, and reptiles can be found on all three days of the fair, which await visitors in the gallery. Many experienced breeders share their tips and tricks for husbandry here.


Aqua-terra symposium and workshops

Parallel to the sales exhibition, you'll find informative symposiums and workshops on freshwater, saltwater, and terrariums with renowned speakers. Entrance to the symposiums and workshops are included in the admission price. "Fisch & Reptil" is especially in the leading position in the field of saltwater. The annual meeting of saltwater patrons from all over Germany is here in Sindelfingen and has long since become an industry known tradition.
