About Us

Company Background

Mr & Mrs Scarll, the owners of Belton Fish Farm, bought the company in 1976 from a Polish man who bred and sold Angelfish to retailers and some large wholesalers. Previously, they ran a small aquatic shop in Goole and occasionally bought fish from Belton Fish Farm, which created the opportunity to buy it when it came up for sale. After purchasing the business they decided to expand by importing from Singapore which is a major hub for tropical fish exports from the Far East and Asia. This enabled them to supply more retailers with a larger range of stock.

Despite some hard times along the way the business went from strength to strength and required help from their daughters who they recruited to work for the business from being in their early teens. Mainly helping out when younger, but became full time employees when the school days were over.

With the growth of the customer base, more staff were taken on. In the last few years a couple of retirements has meant that the company is now back to 4 full and 1 part time.
