The Marine Aquarium Conference of North America is one of the premier conferences for marine aquarium enthusiasts. Each year thousands of fans of captive reefs congregate on the host city to hear talks, check out the new trends in reef keeping and meet up with old friends.
While recent MACNAs have largely been held in the United States, it might be a surprise to some MAST members to learn that MAST held the very first MACNA back in 1989 and the fifth.
Join us at the Living Arts Centre, 4141 Living Arts Drive, Mississauga ON L58 4B8, on May 4th, from 2-5 pm for our Annual Seminar–this year we have two internationally speakers.
Co-founder of the Marine Breeding Initiative (MBI) and the operator of Fishtal Propagations based in Michigan, Tal is sought after in regards to his research and knowledge of captive breeding.
Professor of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering at Penn State University and co-manages Penn State’s Aquarium, Sanjay is an award winning publisher of marine articles and sought after for international speaking engagements.

thanks to the dedication of the executive committee along with helping hands from JT and others, we had a great success at the workshop. Aquatic Kingdom as well as Coral Reef Shop donated corals and glue and because of their generosity a good time was had by all. Additionally, some members contributed their own corals including Jenn/Rene, Cam, Russ and Dayne.
Next in early February
Everyone is encouraged to join our interactive workshop — it will allow you to observe and ask questions as various corals are fragged (cut into smaller pieces for sharing). Attendees will then frag various corals at each of the three tables. Participants will learn how to bag and even ship coral frags to other hobbyists. Everyone will leave with frags.
There will be three tables set up one for each of the major coral groupings, soft corals, LPS and SPS will be fragged and mounted. Everyone will be encouraged to try their hands at fragging each of the coral types.
Cost is estimated at $20 per person
Just a quick reminder that our next MAST meeting for the year will be held Wednesday night (7:30-9:30) at our new location.
This month’s meeting topic will be UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY, presented by Michael McVicar. Michael is extremely experienced in this field and is sure to teach us all something new.
Thanks to Mike and Steve’s hard work, we have a new meeting location!
