Chinese teen fad: Live fish necklaces


Chinese teens with fish necklaces

Since everyone’s fixated on China these days, for obvious reasons, I thought I would take a look at a new trend among Chinese youths and entrepreneurs. It seems like the Chinese population can’t get enough of wearing fish as fashion.

In Chengdu city, teens are snatching up plastic pendants that houses small fish inside. These necklaces are sold for less than fifty cents each. They contain enough fish food and solid oxygen for the fish to last up to 3 months. After the food has run out, you can easily unscrew the top and let the fish go into a larger body of water.

Experts at the Sichuan Provincial Marine Life Research Center are not amused.
