About Us

Our Story

GAAS was established in 2018 with a goal of establishing an Aquatic Society in Austin that would continue to benefit the community for as long as possible.

We are a 501c3 non-profit organization comprised of fishkeeping hobbyists and the fish-curious.

GAAS holds monthly meetups that are free and open to the public. Check it out in the events tab.

We also host larger events, like auctions and vendor expos, 2-3 times per year.

GAAS can take in donations of hard goods, gently used equipment, tanks, etc. This is on a case-by-case basis as space is limited. These donations go towards our Aquatic Sciences Education Donation Program, which gives back to education programs in need.
To make arrangements please email gaastx@gmail.com
Donate to the Fund

GAAS does not have the capacity to accept rescues or donations of live animals.
If you need to give away an animal, we highly suggest our Facebook group or similar local Texas groups for fishkeepers. If you are looking to sell or trade animals, our Discord server is the best place to start. GAAS Fish Rehoming Resources page.
