Ornamental Fish International (OFI) is the peak international trade association representing the ornamental fish industry. OFI was founded in 1980 by a group of ornamental fish industry people looking to improve standards within the industry and provide a ‘voice’ for the industry. One of the main aims that arose from the original meeting was a desire to improve industry standards which still remains a central part of our organisation today.
OFI includes members from 30 countries in the major ornamental fish exporting and importing nations. Our members maintain a high level of integrity and operate by the OFI Charter, They have also invested in the future of the ornamental fish industry by investing in being a member of OFI which represents the interests of the industry around the world.
