The Treasure Coast Area Reef Keepers club was formed in July 2013
To unite local people with a shared interested in the hobby of keeping and observing Marine Aquaria & Coral Reef Aquariums.
To create a place where you can meet new people with a common interest that you can learn from, dive and snorkel with, trade with, and just plain relate to.
To educate non aquarists and aquariest alike to love and protect these beautiful ecosystems.
We will help to introduce and educate people of various aquarium setups and experiences in the art of aquarium keeping. With great emphasis on Protection, Conservation, and Wild Specimen Collection to preserve this amazing hobby for years to come.
And just maybe, with a little bit of effort on our part, we can encourage the next generation to put down the video game controllers and pick up an algae scrubber!
Our Children truly are the future of this rewarding hobby!
Treasure Coast, Florida
The Treasure Coast is a region in the U.S. state of Florida. It is located on the state’s Atlantic coast, formed by Indian River, St. Lucie, and Martin.The region, whose name refers to the Spanish Treasure Fleet lost in a 1715 hurricane, evidently emerged out of residents’ desire to separate themselves from Miami and the Gold Coast region.
All of the Treasure Coast is shielded from the Atlantic Ocean by narrow sandbars and barrier islands that protect the shallow lagoons, rivers, and bays. Immediately inland, pine and palmetto flatlands are abundant.Numerous lakes and rivers run through the Treasure Coast, notably the well known Indian River, a part of the Indian River Lagoon system. At certain seasons of the year, bridges may impede the red drift algae flow, causing a “rotten egg” hydrogen sulfide odor in the area
