Welcome to Fishkeeper Fry

A fintastic learning opportunity for 7-8 year olds!

Fishkeeper Fry 2018 - Episode 2

What is Fishkeeper Fry?

This short video-led course has been designed and produced in line with core primary curriculum science themes by a team of expert fishkeepers to inspire and educate primary school children in the art and science of fish and fish keeping.

All the livestock, guides and videos that make up the lessons within the programme are provided by the specialists at Maidenhead Aquatics, completely free of charge to the schools chosen to participate, and sponsorship from popular aquatic brands Fluval and API, means that each school class that participates in the programme will receive all the equipment they need to set up their aquarium.
