Founded in late 2014, Hawai‘i Tropical Fish Gardens aims to be the premier destination on the Big Island of Hawai‘i for freshwater tropical fish for aquariums and ponds.

The Hawaiian Islands offer a perfect environment for the raising and keeping of tropical aquarium and pond fish from around the world, and the Hamakua Coast is about as idyllic a place as one can imagine to see and experience these different fish in a setting like no other.

Enjoy the cool breeze and take in panoramic ocean views while hundreds of different species of freshwater fish swim at your perusal. Witness tropical Hawaiian foliage in a cooperative setting, enjoying the nutrients that the fish create and pass on to fertilize them.
