Austin Reef Club Is proud to announce that it is now a member of MASNA.

MASNA is a non-profit organization composed of marine aquarium socieities and individual hobbyists from North America and abroad, totaling several thousand individuals.

MASNA's goals are to:

  • Educate our members with online and published material, the MACNA conference, and other sanctioned events
  • Assist in forming and promoting the growth of clubs within the hobby while ensuring a sustainable future for the marine environment
  • Support the efforts to eliminate abuses in collecting and transporting marine organisms through education, assistance and encouragement
  • Encourage the ethical growth of the marine aquarium hobby and support captive breeding/propagation efforts

MASNA operates from a central Board of Directors elected each year by the delegates from the member societies at the Marine Aquarium Conference of North America, (MACNA).

Each year MASNA’s Board of Directors and members select a Member Club from across North America to host the annual Marine Aquarium Conference of North America (MACNA). MACNA offers beginning and advanced hobbyists the opportunity to speak directly with the expert speakers, participate in hands-on workshops, and to gain first hand knowledge of procedures and techniques. It also serves as a social reunion for hobbyists and business acquaintances in addition to showcasing an extensive tradeshow of exhibitors.

MASNA also provides assistance and input to MACNA host clubs to help ensure the continued twenty-year tradition of successful conferences. This event has evolved into the premier conference of the year and consists of presentations by world-renowned hobby leaders, scientists, and other experts.
