Manufacturers of Lobster Tanks

Développement Aqua was founded in 1975 by John Vanha in the municipality of Sainte-Sophie, on the North Shore of Montreal. In 1986, the company expanded in the aquatic industry, leading to a name change to become Développement Aqua Inc.

Our history

Facing increasing competition in the market, Développement Aqua Inc. had to develop its products and increase production to remain competitive. The company managed to maintain its reputation and position in the industry through the signing of several contracts with grocery store chains and fish markets.

Over the years, Développement Aqua Inc. expanded its operations into new markets. Ontario was the second market where the company established itself, followed by the Maritimes, a region with a strong fishing industry presence. More recently, Développement Aqua Inc. also expanded into Western Canada, signing multiple contracts with major grocery chains and stores in that region.

Currently, we are entering the American market, characterized by fierce competition. Our company continues to grow year after year, regularly introducing new products and accessories to our range. We also stand out by manufacturing and marketing our own salt bags for aquariums and fish tanks. Our proprietary recipe has seen tremendous success throughout North America, thanks to the unmatched quality of our product in the market. This initiative has significantly boosted our company’s sales. By offering a unique and high-quality product, we have been able to build a strong customer base and expand our geographical reach.

Thus, since its inception in 1975, Développement Aqua Inc. has experienced significant expansion, extending its operations into new markets while solidifying its position in the aquatic industry. Through its ability to develop and innovate, the company continues to thrive and meet market demands.
