The AKA convention is the national killifish event of the year, held on Memorial weekend. It is held in different cities each year, depending on which affiliate club successfully bids to host it. This event is attended by killifish enthusiasts from all over the US, Canada and from other countries. It starts on the Friday evening, with talks on Friday and Saturday. There is a show in which many species of killifish, ranging from the common to the very rare, are there for display and for judging.
On Sunday the big auction takes place, with hundreds of pairs of killifish, including all those in the show, are for sale. If you want to see and acquire killies, this is the place to do it! But most of all, this is a wonderful opportunity to socialize with fellow killie enthusiasts.
Pictures from some conventions are available in the public gallery.
