About Us

Fueling the Aquarium Hobby

With over 15 years’ experience in exporting tropical marine fish & inverts globally, we have made a name for ourselves within the ornamental marine fish industry as being providers of quality healthy fish alongside having the most experienced staff, well trained in catching, handling and exporting globally.

Why Choose us

Trade not Aid

Wild caught ornamental fish are most often caught in coastal and riverine communities where opportunities to earn a living are limited. Buying one wild fish is like a ripple on the water – your money supports not just the fisherman but also many other businesses along the supply chain within the country of origin. After all, you can’t catch fish without nets and you can’t export without packaging and airports ~ Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association.
