President’s note

I would like to Welcome you to the Marine Aquarium Society of Toronto (MAST) website, and thank Chris, our webmaster, for all his hard work on it! If you have new ideas of items you would like to see on the website, please let us know at

I would like to introduce you to your 2016/2017 Executive Board:

President – Betty Vinson
Vice President – Fred Mammoliti
Treasurer – Jennifer Terris
Chris K – Membership and Webmaster
Jon Thompson – Auctions
Bryan Reid – Events
Rene` Marentette – Events and Auctioneer

We have some fun things planned for this year. On August 27th, we will kick-off our 2016/2017 season with a Coral Show. Check the Calendar of Events and mark the date and time on your calendar. MAST members who renew their memeber will get in free of charge; Non-members will have an entry fee of $5. We are also planning an open house with Reef Wholesale so members can see their facilities (date is still to be determined). We have a webinar scheduled with Ret Talbot about his breaking news National Geographic article in regards to the Successful Captive Breeding of the Royal Blue Tang in Floriday. These are just a few things that will be happening in our 2016-2017 Season! If there is a topic you would like to hear about, please let me know at

Rene` has graciously accepted the task of being auctioneer at the monthly and annual auctions. Stay tuned for updates on the auction process.

Our sponsorship program was so well received last year, through stores networking and hearing about MAST, I am now receiving emails from companies asking how to become a sponsor. Keep checking our Sponsor portion of the website for updates on sponsors.

Again, I hope you are as excited about the 2016/2017 Season of MAST as I am! See you on 27 August for the Coral Show, and 14 September at our kickoff meeting.


Very Respectfully,

Betty Vinson
Marine Aquarium Society of Toronto
