2 Great Ways to Stay Updated


About Us

We strive to provide a wide variety of North American native fishes to private aquarists, public aquariums, and for private pond stocking.

Business Background

  • Started in 2003
  • Ohio native fish are produced via an Ohio Aquaculture Permit through the Ohio Division of Wildlife.
  • Aquaculture Species are available for stocking Aquarium Fish and Stocking Ponds locally.
  • Additional North American fishes are available as aquarium fish only, if not native to Ohio.
  • We mainly focus on the Sunfish Family (Centrarchidae) as well as other various North American native species of fish.
  • Fish are produced yearly by using adult pairs that have been hand selected for brilliant color and strong characteristics.
  • We breed our fish in rubber lined ponds outdoors during summer. The most variety of species is available in late summer or early fall.
  • Fish sold are young to ensure their new owners the pleasure of raising them and enjoying the full life of the fish.
  • Some species cannot be sexed due to their size, and we would recommend getting multiples to increase your chances of getting a specific sex or pairs if desired.

Education Background

  • Brian graduated from Heidelberg University with his Bachelorís Degree in Water Resources and Environmental Biology.
  • Brian continued his education at Bowling Green State University and graduated with a Masterís in Aquatic Ecology.
