WELCOME to the GPASI Breeders Award Program (BAP) – Initiated in April 1976, this BAP has become known as one of the country’s most highly respected and prestigious among aquarium societies today. On this page you can find the resources to participate in the BAP and the current status of participants in the BAP.


Guidance and a program overview are included in the Breeders Award Program handbook. To get credit for a successful spawn, breeders should complete a spawning report and select one of the several methods of verification and participation. The current annual points standings for breeders and most recent successful spawns are shown below.
