Take Your Pet Fish For A Walk With This Crazy Invention!


A Japanese company is working on a quirky container-like bag for live fish, suitable both for pet owners wanting to take their favorite fish on walks, and fans of super-fresh sashimi…

Known as “katsugyo bag” this portable fish tank is shaped like a long tube with a transparent middle section, a handle and a gauge, which, if I had to guess, monitors the oxygen saturation of the water. It is being developed by “Ma Corporation”, and aims to become a more elegant, efficient and environmentally-friendly alternative to the old water-filled plastic bag.

The katsugyo bag is currently still in development, so if it looks like something you’d happily spend money on, you’ll have to wait a bit longer. Its inventors are currently testing the device with a variety of edible fish and documenting each experiment on Instagram. Weird ish if you ask us…

Improvements to the katsugyo bag are still likely to occur, as it’s tested with more types of fish. For example, developers report that fish that like to swim a lot, like mackerel, could be more problematic to transport and they promise to make the necessary adjustments to their product.

Fish owners, is this something that would make you scream out – “Take my money”?!
