Breeding and selling freshwater and aquatic snails

Q: Is it permissible to breed and sell freshwater and aquatic snails? People keep these type of snails in their fish tanks. I do not think anyone (Muslims and non-Muslims) eat them in South Africa.

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
