The Green Bay Aquarium Society (GBAS) is proud to announce that we are fundraising this year for Project Piaba's work with the Rio Negro Fishery. 100% of admission received by GBAS will go towards this fund.

The Green Bay Aquarium Society (GBAS) will hold its 2nd Annual Freshwater/Saltwater Swap Meet on Saturday February 11th 2016 at the Starlite Club, W2091 County Rd JJ, Kaukauna, WI 54130.
Vendor set up begins at 9:00 am. The doors open to the public at noon and the event runs until 3pm. The event is open to the public, and everyone is welcome to attend. Admission is $2 for anyone over the age of 14. Refreshments will be available on site.
GBAS is a non-profit educational organization whose purpose is to further the study of all forms of aquatic life, to promote interest, exchange ideas, and distribute information concerning the aquarium hobby, and to encourage the breeding and display of aquatic life. The swap meet supports this purpose by providing an outlet for area hobbyists to sell the fish and corals they have propagated and/or to purchase varieties of corals and other aquatic life not readily available at area stores. New and used equipment will also be available as well as door prizes and raffles.
GBAS maintains several public aquariums, including those at the Brown County Central Library. Club meetings are held each month at different locations in the Fox Valley or Green Bay.

) is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a mission to increase the environmental, animal welfare, and social sustainability of the Amazonian home aquarium fish trade, to develop and incorporate metrics through which this progress can be assessed, and to provide mechanisms to promote this industry.
