The aquatic product maker is among the big names in the outdoor aquatic market, with aquariums for sale at the largest outdoor aquariums in the country, including aquariums at Canada’s most popular marine parks.
The company has grown by more than a third since 2008, when it started as a hobby store.
But it has recently been overtaken by its outdoor competitors in Canada’s outdoor aquarium market, including Aquafin, which started as an indoor aquarium supplier in Ontario, and the outdoor Aquarium Supply Company.
Last year, Aquafine, a major supplier of indoor aquariums, took a big hit, after it was hit by the collapse of the company’s stock, and was forced to lay off nearly 200 workers.
Aquafinity said it would be able to survive with help from the government, which will allow it to expand the size of its indoor aquarium business by opening two new indoor facilities.
Aquariums can be rented for $1,000 a night, with additional charges if guests stay longer.
The company also said it is considering expanding into a larger outdoor facility, if it can secure a new facility in a warmer climate.
The Aquafins are a popular choice for families who want to explore the outdoors with their children, but not as many people buy them for use as a full-fledged indoor aquarium, said Peter Lantos, chief executive officer of Aquafina.
“There’s a lot of people out there that want to go out to the water and enjoy it, and not just have it in a big aquarium,” he said.
At the Aquafines, visitors can take in the beautiful natural world of Lake Superior and a wide variety of marine life.
In addition to the live fish, visitors may catch turtles, sharks, rays, snails, lobsters, crabs, snapper, and many other fish.
The Outdoor Aquarium Store, located in the back of a Marineland store in Burlington, sells more than 700 indoor and outdoor aquarium products including aquarium accessories, aquarium supplies, fish tanks, and accessories for aquariums.
It is one of the largest indoor aquarium retailers in Canada.
In January, the company was hit with a lawsuit from the federal government after it said it did not follow the requirements of the federal Food and Drugs Act, which requires indoor aquarium stores to keep fish alive and well and to ensure they have a supply of live fish and healthy food for their animals.
An Ontario Superior Court judge said the aquariums violated the law, saying it was the duty of the store to ensure the safety of all its customers.
Marineland has appealed that decision to the Ontario Superior School Board.
