Metropolitan Area Killifish Association
MAKA

Welcome Killifish Enthusiasts!

MAKA, an affiliate club of the American Killifish Association, is one of the oldest specialty aquarium associations in the United States. Organized in 1970, the club's active members include such well-known aquarists as Rosario LaCorte (Secretary), Lenny Mackowiak (President and former AKA New & Rare Species Committee Chairman) and George Slusarczuk (former editor of the AKA Journal.)

The Metropolitan Area Killifish Association meets the 4th Wednesday (except 3rd Wednesday in November and December) of each month at the Meadowlands Environment Center in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. Meetings begin promptly at 8:00 PM. Meetings generally begin with a discussion of club business, followed by a presentation and an auction of fish, eggs, plants, and dry-goods. Refreshments are served.

For more information, contact Lenny Mackowiak or at his alternative email addess or Jim Randall.
