Bridgeview Fisheries is located alongside the river Trent just outside Lichfield in the heart of the midlands. It comprises of a 12 acre site of outdoor ponds with a state of the art indoor cold water hatchery.
The fish farm is owned and operated by Chris Norton. He has been working in farming and aquaculture for all of his working life. Chris has developed a wealth of knowledge and experience working on farms, fish farms and fisheries across the world.
The business of selling fish began in 2005 with a humble few thousand fish and this has grown year on year with increases in demand for the high quality fish being produced. A testament to this being that original customers from back then are still regular customers today.
It may well have all started with a few carp, but now Bridgeview can supply you with Mirror Carp, Common Carp, F1 Carp, Ide, Barbel, Tench, Roach, Chub and Bream.
Bridgeview is comprised of 12 acres of drainable growing ponds. These are stocked from a 100,000 litre hatchery which itself is fed from a 70-metre-deep bore hole, ensuring a constant supply of clean, parasite free water. The fish farm is fully registered with Cefas as an Aquaculture production business.
