Welcome to the Historical FNAS website.

  The site is designed to give information about the Federation
  and its past member clubs.

   It is a historical site because the committee decided to close the
   FNAS and BAF (the British Aquarist Festival) Open Shows at a
   meeting held at the Bradford & DAS OS on 13th May 2018.

   The FNAS Judges are still available if needed and the Committee
    retain the copyright for BAF and the Champion of Champions     awards.  See later site pages for more information.
    The Judges are on Page 4.

    The statement from that committee meeting is shown below.

  This site was designed by Aquatic Services on behalf of the FNAS - see www.drdmford.com

 It is with great regret that the Committee of the Federation of  Northern Aquarium Societies (FNAS) has decided to close down the  federation because there is no longer any funds or viable Aquatic  Societies needing their expertise. Started in 1945 the Federation  grew to include about 50 societies, handled funds of tens of  thousands of £s and held an annual Open Show (BAF - British  Aquarist Festival) from 1951 to the Millennium.
 The FNAS website (
www.fnas.co.uk) will continue as a Historical  Site with details of its history and downloadable copies of the many  FNAS Publications.
