Fighter to get national status?

The Thai Fishery Department has proposed that the Siamese fighting fish, betta sp., be declared Thailand’s national fish, according to The Nation.

The department said this made sense because the Siamese fighting fish originated in Thailand, has a unique identity and Thais are very attached to it, raising the species for sport and for recreation.

A proposal would be sent to the Cabinet Secretariat for consideration.
