About Us

The Columbia Marine Aquarium Club is a registered non profit social group recognized under South Carolina law.

CMAC is a marine aquarium club located in the Greater Columbia area.  Our goal is to provide educational and social opportunities for our members and visitors. We promote good husbandry and responsible care of all the animals in our charge, as well as encouraging the sustainability of our hobby.

We maintain a message board, open to all, to allow for the exchange of information, education, and non-commerical sale of personal aquarium-related items.  We also have a variety of local, national, and international sponsors that help support our club events and raffles.  Many have their own forums where you can reach them and find out about special events.

We also have once a month meetings (locations, dates, and times announced on the home page) at which we have speakers, discussion groups, cook-outs, parties, raffles, giveaways, sponsor promotions, and a whole bunch of fun!  Come check us out and meet some old salts and some up and coming newcomers, all who participate in our engrossing hobby!
