How we work
Fish is imported from our sister companies and suppliers all over the world. These fish are then stocked in our systems, only after a solid quarantine period and throughout quality control, these fish are shipped to our customers.
Our farm has 2400 aquariums and over 350 large fibreglass holding systems which in total hold more than 800.000 litre of water, we also hold 400.000 litre of fresh water in preparation for daily water changes.
The team at Aquafarm understands fish keeping, many of them have been working in the ornamental fish industry for over 25 years and is supported by the renowned fish specialist Gerald Bassleer, and the founder of Colombo, Doctor Mario Blom, to enhance our fish knowledge, our health policies and to provide training to our staff.
