Saving threatened habitats worldwide

Maidenhead Aquatics

Staging site


Maidenhead Aquatics was established in 1984 and is now the UK’s largest leading specialist aquatic retailer with 130 stores throughout the UK. A group of Maidenhead Aquatics stores have been supporting World Land Trust (WLT) for several years. They raise funds through WLT collection boxes in stores and make a donation to WLT for every fish box purchased.

Maidenhead Aquatics is a highly reputable aquatic company that strives for environmental accountability and would never knowingly sell fish that has not been ethically sourced, or where fish-husbandry was questionable. The company actively promotes responsible fish-keeping among their customers.

In 2014 Maidenhead Aquatics donated an additional £725 to WLT, following a charity raffle held in three “Fishkeeper Scotland” stores in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness.

Meanwhile, Maidenhead Aquatics is celebrating its 30th anniversary. To mark the occasion and 30 years of fishkeeping excellence, they have designed a commemorative Bag for Life. Made from natural, renewable and sturdy jute fibres, £1 from the sale of each bag is being donated to WLT. The bags are available in all Maidenhead Aquatics stores and donations resulting from sales will be used to buy and forever preserve an area of Colombian rainforest.  

In 2015 Maidenhead announced that its donations to WLT could be used as match funding for Steve Backshall’s kayak fundraising challenge.
