About Us

Aquatica Australia was founded by Aaron Jenkin in 2001 as a designer and manufacturer of high end marine aquarium filtration and water quality control equipment for to the hobby, commercial aquarium and aquaculture industries.  Aquatica Australia products included protein skimmers (foam fractionators), calcium and media reactors and sump systems as well as built to order, client specific and custom equipment.

Aquatica Australia equipment was supplied to a wide range of advance aquarists as well as numerous retail and wholesale suppliers of aquatic flora and fauna, such as fish, coral and algae breeders and suppliers.   Aquatica Australia also provided design consulting services for whole-of-system planning, design, construction and operation.

In 2005 Aquatica Australia’s activities were slowed while Aaron returned to fulltime consulting where his role as an aquatic ecologist saw new ideas and directions form for Aquatic Australia.  Over the last eight plus years Aaron has worked for a number of medium and large environmental and natural resource management consultancies as a Senior Aquatic Ecologist and Project Manager.  These roles have seen Aaron undertake projects around Australian and internationally, specialising in marine, estuarine and freshwater ecology, due diligence, aquatic impact and risk assessments.

In 2014, Aaron decided the time was right to relaunch Aquatica Australia, present a number of new products to the offering and continue to work on new ideas.

Aquatica Australia’s aim is as it always has been.  Not to take over the world, but to provide a range of niche, specialised, technically advanced and high quality aquatic ecology and scientific research equipment to help expand and develop our understanding and appreciation for the aquatic world and its inhabitants.
