South American Oddballs specializes in importing and housing exotic freshwater species. AFS groups these “oddballs” by region: African, South American, and Asian. AFS avoids collecting species known to be harvested improperly, particularly in the African region.

Certain species, such as Arapaima, are endangered in the wild and AFS only imports these species through CITES certification to ensure future sustainability.  Oddball fish range in size due to the season and maturity or even the particular part of the lake or river from which they were caught.
