The New Hampsire Aquarium Society is a non-profit group made up
of people that have a common interest in marine and freshwater life and
systems. We meet on the second Wednesday of each month from September through
June. Our meetings are held at Somersworth
High School / Technical
consists of a raffle, a bowl show ( nothing fancy, vote for the fish you like
the best ), refreshments, a speaker and/ or a demonstration and a mini
auction of about ten to twenty items made up of fish and dry goods.
Interspersed with all of this is plenty of time for 'fish talk'. Our membership
has varied interests, some salt but mostly fresh water. From no tanks to far
more than are reasonable. Young and old.
We also plan a
summer get-together each year. Past events have included wonderful BBQs at Odiorne
State Park, trips out
to the Isle of Shoals to take a look at their research facility and to spend
the day enjoying the island. One summer we took the train to Boston and had a ' behind the scenes ' tour
of the New England Aquarium.
If this sounds
interesting to you, we would like to invite you to join us for a meeting or
