Happy Fall Everyone!

Due to the government regulations and for the safety of everyone, our meetings and auctions are postponed due to COVID-19.

With technology these days, we have been having successful meetings via Zoom! Last month was show and tell time! Some of our members let us see their amazing fishrooms and aquariums.

This month we have a special guest speaker joining us on Zoom. Coming all the way from Tulsa Oklahoma its Gerald Griffin. Gerald’s knowledge in the hobby is amazing. He will be speaking to us on Evolution and Taxonomy. How are species named? How are species classified? What makes something a species while something else similar is not? We will explore these questions and discuss the taxonomy and evolution of fish. This one you don’t want to miss!


I just want to say a special thank you to my fellow executive members. We have been trying are hardest to come up with special guest speakers and making our zoom meetings more interactive.


Its the time of year that we announce the elections are coming up! If you would like to join or run against any of our executive positions please let me know by emailing me at president@hdas.ca.
