Last week the GSPCA team were overjoyed to wave off the largest fish ever in our care to his new home.

Bruce at over 18 inches in length arrived at the GSPCA in March 2016 and for over 5 years we have been trying to find him a new home.

Yvonne Chauvel Senior Animal Care Assistant said “Bruce is certainly the largest fish I have cared for at the GSPCA and the biggest we have probably ever had.”

“Bruce is a Plecostomus and spends most of his time relaxing and we really hope he will adore his new home.”
