Always wanted to try a marine aquarium? Then don't miss our January meeting. Steve Abrams, Long Island Aquarium Society member and manager of the Stony Brook University School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences Lab, will talk about how to get started in keeping a marine tank.
Steve has been maintaining aquariums all his life and has successfully bred 60-70 species. He currently has about 70 tanks operating in his fish room. Steve holds a Master’s Degree in biology and teaching sciences at the college level and he has been published in Freshwater and Marine Aquarium Magazine. There are few people in our region more knowledgeable about aquarium science and practice.

"Going to the NEC" has been a tradition among hobbyists for over 40 years, making it the longest running, and one of the largest, all-species organized aquarium hobby events in the Western Hemisphere. (we must be doing something right!) Last year's "NEC" received much acclaim for its non-stop diversity of offerings and friendly atmosphere.
The 2017 Convention is OPEN TO ALL and will feature 3 days of: multiple speakers and programs, multiple shows/exhibitions, multiple auctions, multiple specialty club meetings, multiple fish/plant/dry good vendors, manufacturer booths, hospitality room, full-course chef-prepared buffet meals, raffles and freebies, amazingly modern and comfortable accommodations, and most of all, the chance to meet and greet friendly hobbyists from around the country (and from other countries!).
Stay tuned for more! We will be posting updates on this site and our Facebook Event Page at facebook.com/events/227381200997505/#

At the light, make a right onto Marburger Drive and then make the next right (the street has no name but there are signs indicating that you are near the Marine Sciences buildings). Follow the road all the way to the back and you will see three buildings - Discovery, Challenger and Endeavour – the last one is Endeavour Hall.
