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 maintain records of the participants spawns and recognizes each person when they reach specific milestones on their way to being an MAAH Ultimate Breeder. The points are cumulative and will act as a record of accomplishment for each participant. Each year the club will recognize some outstanding participants with Breeder of the Year awards. The MAAH BAP year is from July 1 – June 30, and annual awards are given out at the annual Summer picnic in July. For a full description of the MAAH BAP program, please see the rules link below. Other links include the BAP spawn submission and verification form, the species point value charts and the member point totals (cumulative and annual).
