Welcome to the Goldfish Society of Great Britain

The GSGB caters for everyone interested in goldfish from beginners to those who have kept and bred goldfish in all their varieties for many years.

Formed in 1948 we are the biggest Goldfish club in the UK with members in almost every county and city in England and throughout Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland: and from North America, Asia, Australasia the Middle East and Europe.

We meet 6 times a year, produce a bi-monthly  full colour bulletin, hold an open show and auction each September and offer a member’s only website.

Membership offers all this and the opportunity to buy fish from breeders and access to some of the most knowledgeable goldfish breeders in the country.

Membership per year is as follows:

Bulletins by e-mail £15 UK and Worldwide; Bulletins by post £30, UK ONLY
