About Us

MF Aquatics was established in late 2013 after a long lasting interest in coldwater fish through either keeping ornamental garden ponds or being an avid angler for over 25 Years!

After many years of watching poor advice and underhanded sales tactics (on a par with some car salesmen!), MF Aquatics was born out of a Hobby and a frustration at ‘the trade’. My aim was to run a small home based business in Derby, where advice was genuine, honest  and relevant. If you were to use our water testing service and there are zero issues we are not going to sell you a preventative remedy – mainly because they don’t really exist!

With that in mind you can rest assured we know what we want to achieve for our customers. Fishy wellbeing! It’s not just about Koi carp for Sale!

We have negotiated directly with farms and our CEFAS authorisation allows us to import directly (with the required paperwork and health checks!) from them from around the world.

We source Quality Koi from Israel and Superb fancy goldfish from Thailand, Singapore, China and Hong Kong.

We also work with a number of UK CEFAS authorised farms to source high quality Comets, Shubunkins, Orfe, Tench, Carp and other native species. as well as our own 4 acre site with native species and  pond plants.

Our fish are quarantined on site before sale to ensure you get healthy fish delivered to your door.

We have expanded throughout 2015/16 into the restocking and fishery management market and can also supply health certified coarse fish over the winter months for fisheries. Netting and Cropping services are also available.

In short, we can just about cover anything coldwater fish related in the UK!
