Auction

The Minnesota Aquarium Society holds three day-long auctions each year. Local aquarists bring their bagged fish, bagged aquatic plants, tanks, and aquarium supplies. Each item is auctioned to those attending with the seller receiving a share of the selling price. Anyone is allowed to buy and sell, however, MAS members receive better rates.Please refer to the current auction rules, which may be change between auctions.

RESCHEDULED ! Due to the predicted snow storm, the Winter Auction is being rescheduled.  We feel both sellers and buyers benefit when the day-long auction is held on a weekend when many people can attend.  This means more fish, plants, and items available, and more interested attendees to keep the prices reasonable.

We are looking at a Saturday in February (after Super Bowl weekend).  Once we confirm all the needed details, we will announce the new date here.  We hope to know by the end of this weekend.  If you are not subscribed to our email announcments, please go to the bottom of the MAS home page and sign up.
