Aquarium Münster – Fish like us
Ornamental fish and the name Pahlsmeier and Aquarium Münster have been connected inseperably for decades.
Everything began with an ornamental fish breeding concern founded by Adolf Pahlsmeier Snr. in 1926, which was soon to achieve international recognition with the exportation of Angel fish to America by sea freight. For this special purpose a fish keeping installation was established on the ocean vessel “Bremen”.
Under the management of Adolf Pahlsmeier jr. the company developed further to an ornamental fish wholesaler. Import and Export were now in the foreground. With the pioneering invention of FAUNAMOR, the first remedy against Ichthyophthirius (white spot disease), the business concept was changed in 1968. The range of high quality aquatic products was extended on a continual basis and is today the most important branch. Milestones during this period were the sole distribution of Furanace-P (later: AQUAFURAN) and the developement of the patented dosing system of FURAMOR-P. Other innovations are the AQUA-CLIPPER, different underwater glues and AQUAVITAL BACTOSPRINT, the first 2-components-product with immobilized microorganisms that are activated immediately before use.
Today the company is managed by the brothers Dirk Pahlsmeier and Mark Pahlsmeier and the great-grandson of the founder Moritz Pahlsmeier. Aquarium Münster partners are found in all important markets all over the world.
