Auction Roundup 05/02/2017

 

Firstly my apologies for being so tardy in getting this month’s roundup to you – unfortunately I have been time poor of late and was unable to attend the auction myself, so a special thanks to the Committee for making the results available to me, and even though I had them the day after the auction, I have only just had a chance to collate them.

Also the formatting is out of whack so I have also attached the file for download.

 

The PCS Auction was held on 5th Fen 2018 I can’t give you any idea of the number of attendees as I was not there. Judging from the results the prices for the more prestige stock seemed to be quite good, however generally prices were at the low end. PLEASE NOTE: numbers and percentages in brackets refer to the previous auction and are provided for comparison.

 

And here are the stats.  The full list of 150 lots went under the hammer.  (There did not appear to be any scratched/lots withdrawn) Here is a break up of Lots by number and percentage of total. There were 5 Lots passed in, being two Fish, two Catfish and one Plant lot, where no bids being received or did not meet Reserve.

 

 

Type                          Number of Lots          % of Total

 Book/Mag                         1                             0.67

 Catfish                             17                           11.33

 Cichlids                           57                            38.00

 Non Cichlids                  22                            14.67

 Other**                         13                             8.67

 Plants                             29                            19.33

 Shrimp                           10                            6.67

 Snails                               1                             0.67

 Total Fish*                    79                             52.67

 Total Fish&Catfish       96                             64.00

Total                              150                          100.00

 

 

* Sub-total of all fish – not part of overall total.

** All items not categorised as above.

 

Cichlids, Catfish and Cichlid Books/Mags, made up 50% (62% ) of Lots on offer and Non-Cichlids, Plants, Shrimp and Snails made up 41% (32% ) of Lots on offer. The remaining 9% was made up of Other items (Food, pumps, accessories etc.).

 

Being a Cichlid Society I have included tables which are cichlid specific.

There were 10 Shrimp Lots – the best of which was a bag of 3 x Caridina dennerli "Sulawesi White Glove Shrimp" @ 1-2cm for $25.00 or $8.33per shrimp – I personally would have expected these to have achieved higher than they did?
