About us

J&K Aquatics was formed in 1984, by Paul and Judy James, initially as a part time venture with a small retail shop in Wellington. Over the intervening years they have built the company into one of the UK’s largest wholesalers of aquatic dry goods and fish, serving the whole of the UK and ROI.

In 2013, J&K Aquatics moved to a 2.3-acre site with a purpose-built warehouse, fish house and office facilities, just off the motorway at junction 24, North Petherton.

These new premises allowed J&K Aquatics to hold more stock and their continued investment in technology to improve their service means that their logistics and processes are more streamlined than ever. They can get products onto the shelves in your store faster than ever before and their operation ensures that they offer a reliable supply of products and an accurate service.

At J&K Aquatics they aim to provide a complete aquatic service, offering their customers access to a comprehensive selection of core brands and commodity items covered by their Betta range, as well as specialist lines imported from around the world.

They have created a one-stop shop for all your aquatic needs as they also offer quality fish and plants, saving you time when ordering. All of this is backed up by competitive pricing and the highest standards of service and support.

J&K Aquatics pride themselves on being a unique wholesaler that can provide livestock and dry goods on one order. They continue to refine and improve the warehouse and fishhouse to make sure they offer the best and most varied supply.

Alongside their vast range of tropical species, they wholesale a range of marine fish, invertebrates, and more!

Their coldwater offering is also expanding on a weekly basis and they are continuing to develop this area. A real focus has been put on finding exciting species that will provide a real draw to get customers through your doors.

The past few years has seen some real changes in our industry with customers changing their ordering behaviour, and many manufacturers reviewing their route to market. J&K Aquatics however, is an agile business, willing to adapt to the changes its' customers face whilst keeping its' core values of providing an honest, reliable service at its' heart.
