As owner of Aquajardin Ltd it gives me great pleasure to say that we have been buying ornamental fish from ‘Hampshire Carp Hatcheries’ for the last 25 years having started the business back in April 1993.

The standard and quality of their fish has always been second to none and over the years we have witnessed continuous improvements in colour and variety.

The Shubunkins are amazing! offering a beautiful mix of blue, red, orange and black patterns that really stand out in the tanks. In amongst the Goldfish are blood red and white Sarasa, truly stunning fish!

All the fish at Hampshire Carp are home bred so with the exception of a few easily treated parasites the health has always been first class.

The weekly availability list keeps us up to date and with overnight delivery it makes for easy ordering. The fish are well packed and show little or no signs of stress on arrival.

We have been delighted with the service from Hampshire Carp over the years and look forward to the continuation of our good business relationship.

We congratulate them on reaching their 25th Anniversary and wish them well for the future.

For over 30 years the students at Sparsholt College have benefitted enormously from support and collaboration with Hampshire Carp Hatcheries. Student groups at all levels regularly visit the fish farm to learn the practical skills of ornamental and coarse fish farming, i.e. feeding fry in a hatchery, undertaking health checks for parasites, environmental monitoring and preparing ponds for stocking.

HCH also take students on work experience blocks which are a great opportunity for training and can often lead to future employment.

Another important area of support from HCH to the College is for fish food research in collaboration with commercial feed manufacturers such as Coppens and Tetra. Each year students undertake industry led feed trials, testing key nutritional parameters, such as protein level, novel ingredients, feed rate or dietary pigment on fish supplied by HCH.

This work has contributed greatly to our understanding of ornamental fish nutrition and is another great opportunity for the students which would not be possible without HCH. In summary, this support from HCH has been invaluable to the training of fishery and aquaculture students at Sparsholt and we are extremely grateful!
