First-time exhibitor Aqualine is a wholesaler specialising in tropical fish, live and frozen fish food, and aquatic plants, and makes weekly deliveries to the UK from the Netherlands.

Co-owner Marcel Pellekooren said: “We visited the show two years ago and afterwards made the decision to exhibit this year, and we are so pleased we did. It has provided us with the opportunity to forge new business.”

His wife, Henriette, said the two had been working in garden nurseries all their lives before deciding to set up their own business and sell direct to the UK.

Marcel drives to the UK every week in their own branded van – all fish sales are pre-ordered, but plants can be chosen from what’s on offer in the van.
