The Marine Aquarium Society of Sydney (MASS) is a non-profit association for marine aquarium enthusiasts in Sydney and regional NSW dedicated to the Marine Aquarium hobby

 MASS was established in 2000, holding its first meeting in March of that year, and established as an Incorporated Association with the NSW Office of Fair Trading in April 2006.

MASS is also an affiliated member society of the Marine Aquarium Societies of Australia (MASA)   

We believe that the future of the hobby will be built by developing successful and enthusiastic hobbyists. And we believe that the best way to do that is to bring together like-minded pepole to share their experiences, knowledge and ideas with each other. We seek to foster a community of freindships and people who are prepared to go out of their way and be willing to assist others to increase their knowledge and skills in caring for the fascinating creatures with which we are so privileged to share our lives &homes with.
