Most meetings will feature a guest speaker, open discussion, and an auction for equipment, fish, and plants. Refreshments are provided and there are raffle prizes for both members and guests. Each fall we run an annual All-Day Auction which includes hundreds of lots, many of which are donations from our generous sponsors. You will find attendees from both the area and nearby states both buying and selling. It’s a great opportunity to get into the hobby, find a deal on the item you’ve been searching for, or perhaps score a deal on the rare fish you have never seen before.

1 member Missouri
Website: seasl.org We are a group of enthusiasts who come together to share our knowledge and learn from others about our saltwater aquarium hobby. The purpose of SEASL is to promote responsible ornamental marine fish and reef-keeping husbandry practices among hobbyists in the St. Louis area. To achieve this goal, we meet to share our knowledge, host local and nationally known guest speakers, organize field trips, and engage in group discussions. We normally meet the second Saturday of the month from September through May, unless otherwise scheduled. Meetings often include coral door prizes and programs include speakers, and demonstrations. At various times during the year, local retailers host an open house for SEASL. Those events get large turnouts. The storeowners give us a tour of their operations, exclusive shopping time, discounts, a summary of their involvement in the hobby, and their personal attention for our questions and comments. Please see our Events page for details about our next meeting. We would love to see you there!
