Magic Valley Heli-Arc was founded in 1975 as an all purpose welding shop. In 1979 the first fish transfer pump was developed and the Aqua-Life product line was born. Magic Valley Heli-Arc has since focused all research, design, and production towards the harvesting, transferring, and transporting of live fish and shrimp. Utilizing almost three decades of experience in the aquaculture industry and the latest technology; we have engineered some of the finest quality and highest performance fish transfer pumps available today. Continuing almost 30 years of quality, only the finest products in the industry carry the Aqua-Life name.
In 1979 the Aqua-Life Fish Pump was the first pump designed specifically for the movement of live aquatic species without external or internal damage to the species. Hydraulically driven and constructed of marine alloy aluminum, Aqua-Life Fish Pumps are very light weight making them easily moved and installed for any setup.
