SEE A BETTA FARM IN THAILAND
If you'd like to see what a betta farm that grows hundreds of thousands of bettas every year looks like, please log onto the site at http://www.atisonbetta.com and click on the "Who am I" link at the top of the page. It will take you to a brief biography page of Mr. Atison Phumchoosri's with several pictures of his betta farm.
The reason I'm posting this link on a separate page instead of in the Links page is that I've sent an email to Mr. Phumchoosri asking him several questions about the logistics of raising bettas on such a grand scale. When he responds I'll post his answers here.
Mr. Phumchoosri sells fish in quantities of single males all the way to orders consisting of 20,000 bettas to anywhere in the world. Many of his show quality fish are outstanding and he has many great pictures of them on his site. Also very interesting are his pictures of many wild betta varieties and his efforts to save them from extinction.
