Aquarium Threads was started by the Marine Aquarium Societies of North America (MASNA) when they saw a need to help the marine community show and share their love for marine aquaria and the marine environment.
Many of our collections go to directly support the continued education of marine aquarium communities, and to directly support MASNA.
MASNA is a non-profit organization composed of marine aquarium clubs, individual hobbyists, and industry partners from North America and abroad, totaling several thousand individuals.
MASNA’s Goals are to:
- Educate our members with online and published material, the MACNA conference, and other sanctioned events
- Assist in forming and promoting the growth of clubs within the hobby while ensuring a sustainable future for the marine environment
- Support the efforts to eliminate abuses in collecting and transporting marine organisms through education, assistance and encouragement
- Encourage the ethical growth of the marine aquarium hobby and support captive breeding/propagation efforts
