MASNA members are invited to nominate up to three people for the Aquarist of the Year award, and The MASNA Award no later than June 5th, 2022.
Kathy Leahy of St. Louis, Missouri is the 2021 MASNA Aquarist of the Year in recognition of her friendship, her mentoring, the sharing of her knowledge, and for inspiring countless marine aquarists in the art of breeding marine fish.
It is that time of year where MASNA askes the marine aquarium community to nominate those special aquarists for the highest honors given within the marine aquarium community. Who will you put forward for consideration? Remember, they can’t win if they were never nominated!
MASNA is proud to announce Alf Jacob Nilsen as the 2020 MASNA Award recipient for his foundational role in developing, documenting, and communicating processes and advancements in the marine aquarium industry, and Tal Sweet as the 2020 MASNA Aquarist of the Year for his years promoting marine ornamental aquaculture and fostering diversity and inclusion within the aquarium community.
A call for nominations! Is there a marine aquarist deserving of recognition for a recent accomplishment or a lifetime of contributions to the art and science of reef keeping and saltwater aquariums? MASNA members embark on the annual quest to recognize two aquarists in 2020.
