Forrest Mars, Sr. worked with food scientist, Dr. David Ford – to not only develop a fish food that would be nutritionally superior to all others, but to also prove it with lab-controlled trials.


The AQUARIAN® brand was born when the first fish food products were launched in the UK. Seven different large flake size recipes were developed, and identified by colour so fish keepers could select the best recipe for their fish.
