Gills & Scales is a young but solid company,which has deliberately chosen for a slow growth with a long-term vision. A brief outline of the history….
The family lake, Karperveen, will be purchased from my grandfather. The renovation of the lake house and the redesign of the water and land can start.
The contract is signed with the owner of the Kanaalke, the heavy refurbishment work can start.
March - June 2013
The first promotion is conducted for Het Karperveen and Het Kanaalke. The first customers quickly find their way to both waters, and with success!
Winter 2013 - 2014
Het Kanaalke is having a makeover. The road is being redesigned, a sanitary unit has been provided and
the swims got a solid surface. The first fish
supplies on Het Kanaalke and Het Karperveen are
also a fact.
The purchase of the 3rd Water, Forest Valley is a fact. Immediately after the purchase, Forest Valley will have 35 new fish, one of them hits nearly 26 kg. Ready for the 2015 season!

kitchen unit, refrigerator, freezer, toilet and shower.

Gills & Scales hires his first employee,Kelly Vanroei, in order to further improve the service at our lakes.
Kanaalke 1 has been stocked with 750 kilo of young carp between 10 to 15kg. A top release of more than 46 fish between 15 and 32 kilos on Kanaalke 2, Forest Valley and Karperveen. With this the largest mirror carp of The Netherlands.
Gills & scales goes to Germany and starts the discussions to buy the Dreamvalley complex. Unfortunately, these conversations result in a no-go
A big fish mortality hits Forest Valley and killed our two top fish of the water. A poisoned black day in the history of Gills & Scales.
Forest Valley is equiped with 29 new young carp, with an extra surprise from the fish farmer, a gorgeous 23kg mirror as topfish.
We start by feeding specially developed D-cell + boilies to look at the effect on the health, growth and recovery of the carp.
Gills & Scales closes a top year. Many catches, but especially fish that grow like cabbage! The D-cell + Boilies really work! Now we'll feed a winter and then we are ready for 2019 ....
Still more to come...
