The Northeast Regional Aquarium Conference aka NERAC is taking place in Long Island and we are very much looking forward to an overdue visit to the fabulous saltwater displays at the Long Island Aquarium & Exhibition Center, formerly known as Atlantis Marine World. This Saturday, the home of Joe Yaiullo’s world-famous 20,000 gallon inland coral reef will also be hosting quite the reef aquarium party with lots of passionate reefers in attendance.
NERAC will feature all the best of what we come to expect from a mature marine aquarium conference including tons of frags for sale, many different exhibitors, and a raffle packed with lots of exciting prizes of useful and valuable reef aquarium gear. Like ReefStock earlier this year, NERAC is an intimate affair and there will be plenty of opportunities to mingle with pillars of the reef aquarium community including Joe Yaiullo and his speaker pals like Sanjay Joshi, Jamie Craggs, Rich Ross and myself, Jake Adams.
Admission starts at just $15 to get in on most of the action, and up to $95 for a full day pass which mostly goes to cover the cost of two thoughtful meals, not the least of which is an elegant evening banquet positioned right next to that ginormous mini coral reef that passes for a saltwater tank. Basic entry also gets you discounted access to see all of the world class exhibits that are on location so be sure to clear your schedule for this saturday because this is promising to be an event to remember.
