Description:

Whoever thought breeding fish could be a profitable venture?  With the Fish Tycoon iPhone app it now can be!  This is fun fish simulation game that allows you to take care of fish and try to make some money while doing it.  You will start the game with around three hundred bucks and a few fish eggs that you got from a fabled island named Isola.  Legend has it that there are seven Magic Fish that can be found in Isola.  It is up to you to break the genetic code and breed the fish  until you can find these seven magical creatures.  As you create new fish you will be able to sell them and collect cash to further your operations.  You can also buy a bunch of different items to decorate your tank and help you care for your fish better.   You will need to find a mix of maintaining your fish as well as breeding in order to profit from your ventures.
