Join the Chesapeake Marine Aquaria Society (CMAS)
The Chesapeake Marine Aquaria Society (CMAS) was founded in 1993 as a volunteer organization to bring together persons interested in the hobby of maintaining marine fish and invertebrates. Through monthly meetings, newsletters, and the Website, members and their guests share knowledge and experience in all aspects of the hobby and network with fellow hobbyists. In addition, CMAS sponsors local and nationally known experts to speak on various aspects of marine aquarium keeping.
