About the British Aquarists' Society[edit]

BAS is an enthusiasts' society founded in Bristol in 1929 specializing in fancy goldfish. Our aims are:

  • To advance the study and enjoyment of goldfish and all coldwater life
  • To keep and breed the various strains of fancy goldfish, and to exhibit them at shows
  • To bring new members into the Society

Like most clubs, we have a committee to run the society, consisting of a President, Treasurer, Secretary and several others, who are elected for three years on a rotational basis. The committee organizes the Annual Show, the regular meetings, and such like.


Membership is £8 Sterling per year (£4-50 for people under 18 or over 65, and £10 overseas). There is a monthly newsletter containing a report of the previous meeting and articles of interest about the hobby.
