Breeder Award Program

The WVAS Breeder Award Program (BAP) is a point-based award system designed to encourage club members to breed their aquarium animals. The program is open to any club member in good standing. 

Members (who choose to participate) accumulate points for each different species (and/or their color forms) they successfully spawn. Species are listed in six classes based on their respective degrees of difficulty. 

If a species is not listed, it will be judged on an individual basis by a board member and the club's BAP coordinator.

The member entering livestock for BAP points must own the parents of organisms. Ten or more fry/offspring need to survive one month free swimming in order to be considered. Some species have less fry and can be evaluated by the BAP coordinator on an individual basis.

Members wishing to participate DO need to fill out the BAP form for EACH species (and color form within each species) to be considered. In addition, the member must bring 6 individuals from their spawn to the auction, and "BAP" must be indicated on the container. Please bag fish appropriately.

BAP submission livestock are auctioned off as a donation to the club. Members may opt out of bringing fry to the auction if prearranged with the BAP coordinator and/or board with a valid reason. Bringing fish and other livestock you have produced to the auction shows off your accomplishment (and your fish's, too!)
