Ornamental aquatic trade association (OATA) is the only organisation in the UK that strives to promote and safeguard the future of the entire UK ornamental aquatics industry.

They have been involved in many projects one recently was the “hands of my hobby” campaign. This campaign helped to keep the fish industry alive.

They also provide us with information leaflets and posters so we can provide them to you, our customers, to help you keep your fish happy and healthy and enjoy the hobby of fish keeping.

Oata also offer a range of courses and a more advanced diploma course on fish health, filtration, fish biology, and water quality.

Manager Elizabeth Whitehouse and Cichlid man (aka fish man ) John Elwell have completed these courses.
