Breeder Award Program (BAP)

The MAAH Breeder Award Program promotes the captive breeding of fish and invertebrates. Participants strive to reproduce animals in their care, and when they are successful they submit the spawns to the club for verification. Each species is worth points, with more difficult species being given a higher value. The club maintains records of the participant’s spawns and recognizes each person when they reach specific milestones on their way to being an MAAH Ultimate Breeder.


  • The MAAH BAP year is from August 1 – June 30
    • Annual awards are given out at the annual Summer picnic in July.
