Our History

GloFish® fluorescent fish are exclusively licensed by Yorktown Technologies, L.P. Our company was founded in 2001 by Alan Blake and Richard Crockett with the goal of providing the first ever fluorescent fish to the aquarium market. In late 2003, after two and a half years of extensive environmental research and consultation with various Federal and State agencies, as well as leading experts in the field of risk assessment, GloFish® caused quite a “splash” when they became available to the public. Since that time, we have worked tirelessly to make our fish available, and we have been proud to offer them to consumers across the United States.

Alan and Rich continue to manage the company’s operations and hope that you have a chance to Experience the Glo!®
