Why join?

By joining the British Killifish Association you increase the circle of killi-lovers who appreciate these fascinating and mostly beautiful fish. You help contribute to the captive breeding and maintenance of species that have become endangered in the wild and help promote wider understanding of the pressures on many wild populations. BKA Members share knowledge, expertise and most importantly fish and eggs of many species and participate in collecting trips, even contributing stock for scientific investigations. We collaborate with other National Killifish Associations, attending some of their Conventions and inviting them to ours.
We hold regional shows/auctions where you can see a range of killis up close and talk face to face with knowledgeable keepers. Once a year we hold a weekend Convention with a show, auctions and talks by renowned aquarists/scientists from around the globe.   We welcome novices and experienced, young and old and from any background. The only criterion is a wish to learn more about killis.

Members receive the following:-

  • All colour bi-monthly journal ‘Killi-News’, containing articles on all aspects of killi-keeping together with descriptions of new species, collecting trip reports
  • Beginners guide to keeping killis
  • Rules of the Association
  • Access to the Membership Area of the website
