"As a new primary investigator, building a new laboratory from scratch was not an easy task. Selecting the right aquarium tank was a very critical challenge and Aquatic Enterprises helped me a lot in this process. They provided their expertise in a friendly manner in any step of the process, from design and installation to maintenance."
"Every time I contact Aquatic Enterprises, I receive prompt and to-the-point answers to my questions, which keep my sea hares healthy and makes my life easier!"

Since its inception in 1990, Aquatic Enterprises, Inc. has strived to be on the leading edge of aquatic animal housing. The president and founder of the company, Daniel Vinci, started working in aquatic animal husbandry in 1985. In 1990, Mr. Vinci relocated to Seattle, Washington and started Aquatic Enterprises, Inc. The company’s roots were primarily involved in aquarium design, installation, and services for decorative freshwater and marine fish and invertebrates. In 2000, Aquatic Enterprises entered the area of manufacturing. At first, manufacturing was limited to live seafood holding systems. Within a few years, Aquatic Enterprises had manufactured and installed some of the largest, custom retail display seafood aquarium systems on the West Coast. The company maintains all of these systems today, a testament to the robust design and manufacturing. Our seafood systems have housed everything from fresh and saltwater finfish, to crustaceans, and molluskan bi-valves.
In 2002, our first full scale, centrally filtered research aquarium facility was engineered and installed at the University of Washington for their Environmental Science Program. This system is a cold saltwater system for environmental sciences and invasive species studies. The system is still in use today.
In 2004, Aquatic Enterprises sold the decorative aquarium division to concentrate its efforts on engineering, manufacturing and servicing aquarium systems exclusively for seafood and scientific applications.
Today, we engineer and manufacture our equipment using state-of-the-art technology and machinery. Aquatic Enterprises superior craftsmanship is backed by our staff with over 65 cumulative years of experience in aquatics, fisheries biology, and manufacturing.
We currently serve clients in universities and schools, research institutes, public aquariums, fish hatcheries, seafood retailers, and seafood wholesalers.
