4-H Aquarium Club
The 4-H Aquarium Club is open to youth ages 5-18 who are interested in being members of a community of youth aquarium hobbyists! This group is for Maine youth who already have an aquarium hobby, or who are looking to start one, to come together to talk about their love for fish and aquaria. The club is led by aquaculture experts Dr. Scarlett Tudor from UMaine’s Aquaculture Research Institute, and Melissa Malmstedt from the UMaine Center for Cooperative Aquaculture Research (CCAR).
The discussion topics for each meeting are decided by youth, guided by their interests, expertise, and questions! This is a laid-back group, with rolling registration, and flexibility to join the meetings when it works for you. Past topics include water quality, fish selection, how to care for sick fish, and emergency preparedness.
