Northern-Aqua's owner and founder is Daniel Hope BSc (Hons). Daniel has over 15 years experience in sports fisheries, over 10 years experience in the aquatic trade and has also worked for 2 years in the fish farming industry. Combined with this he has an honours degree in Aquaculture and Fishery Management from Portsmouth University. He is a qualified fishery manager and consultant.
In 2010 Daniel decided to make his passion his vocation and set-up Northern-Aqua. This was done on a part-time basis whilst he worked in a management role in the aquatic retail trade. Over the proceeding years the company continued to grow. Northern-Aqua now has a network of clients and suppliers across Scotland and England.
In september 2013, there was simply too much work for Northern-Aqua to complete on a part-time basis. Daniel left his full-time occupation and focussed his efforts on growing and expanding the business.
Towards the end of 2013 Alex Hope arrived on board. Alex brings with him skills in gardening, landscaping, construction and is an aquatic hobbiest himself. Alex has now taken on the role of Scottish Area Manager and is focussed on our clients in that area.
Northern-Aqua take on a vast array of aquatic based jobs. From your small goldfish aquarium clean to large building contract work, Northern-Aqua is poised to take on any aquatic challenge. The company works alongside and with other tradesmen. Northern-Aqua often employs their skills to add to the quality of product we provide.
Northern-Aqua continues its training through its affiliation with the Institute of Fisheries Management. You can be rest assured our knowledge is up to the minute and can be relied upon.
It is Northern-Aqua's aim to be the premier aquatics experts in Scotland and the North of England. Maintaining quality, standards, knowledge and excellent customer relations is how we plan on achieving this goal.
