PRAC … A Little Club History:

A Fish Club was born in 1970 / 71 as The Brampton Aquarium Club. Over the years we've attracted many Aquarium enthusiats from other municipalities such as Caledon, Mississauga, Etobicoke & elsewhere.

In early 2008, we changed our name from Brampton Aquarium Club to Peel Regional Aquarium Club to better reflect who we are and the community in which we meet.

Most of our Aquarium Club members are from the Region of Peel, Brampton, Caledon, Mississauga, but we also attract member hobbyists from as far away as Barrie, Collingwood, Guelph, Huntsville & even Toronto. Anyone can become a member who wishes to share in the excitement of fish keeping, Whether you're a 'newbie' or a veteran hobbyist.

Got A Fish Question?

If you want to find out the latest information on fish keeping or have a problem that needs a solution, come to our meeting and ask the experts. Our friendly environment has attracted many new & experienced aquarium hobbyists. We hope you may be our next member.
