“Big Rich” Price & The Ohio Fish Rescue

Ohio Fish Rescue is a sanctuary for large “Monster  Fish”  located in Strongsville, Ohio.

This rescue takes in fish from local areas and some not-so-local areas, that all need a new home because they simply grow too large for the average aquarist to care for.

We have all seen those baby red-tailed cats, pacu, & iridescent sharks among many other species so commonly found, that are so cute and appealing in shops when they are tiny. Unfortunately, the reality is, that these fish are “monster fish” and once taken home, veryfew people are equipped to provide adequate homes for fish that grow 4 FEET long!

This is where the rescue comes in… with their 4 thousand gallon showstopper tank and several other tanks topping out at over a thousand gallons, Big Rich along with his family and team give these guys a better home.  Sometimes that is at the rescue and sometimes the rescue is a stopping ground for the fish before they are taken in by public aquariums.

Big Rich also takes in all mannor of fish including smaller “Big” fish such as  Oscars, that he helps place in new homes as well.
