Wild-caught: (adj.) Wild-caught animals for the aquarium trade are born in the wild, but collected and shipped to wholesalers and aquarium stores for sale to hobbyists. Wild-caught individuals are not necessarily bad for the environment, as long as collection is humane and the animals are not overcollected. Wild collection is often good for the economy and for education and breeding, especially when large-scale captive breeding of an animal is not feasible.
