What the Professionals Say

I like the way the mag is put together. Stunning photography, easy to read, interesting articles that inform and educate, whilst not taking itself too seriously. A must-read magazine for aquarists of all abilities.

Dale Pritchard, Director Ecoreef UK

Ultramarine Magazine is a great way to find out what is happening in the marine aquarium hobby; for background reference as well as keen travelogues to places we hobbyists would like to visit. Ultramarine provides a forum for all the UK; with listings of specialty shops and stockists, as well as current product reviews of saltwater gear. Am very happy to be associated with the fine folks contributing content and rendering it to their readership.

Bob Fenner, USA. Aquarist and Author

Aquarium keeping is a fantastic hobby! It brings you closer to nature and helps you learn a lot about the many interactions that go on in aquatic habitats, whether it is on the coral reefs, in the Amazon River or in the Great Lakes of Africa. But as you spend a lot of money on equipment, fish, plants and invertebrates, you should spend some time reading and making yourself a theoretical platform on which you can run your tanks and maintain your livestock. UltraMarine is from my point of view the best aquarium-orientated magazine in UK today. It has a broad spectrum of articles, an excellent and modern layout, and lets you know what other aquarium enthusiasts are doing.
