Welcome to ANGFA

The Australian New Guinea Fishes Association brings together people with common interests in understanding more about the freshwater fishes and aquatic habitats of the region.

ANGFA’s objectives are to promote the study, conservation and culture of the native freshwater fish species of Australia and New Guinea, and to provide a forum for the exchange of information.


Short History of Rainbowfish in Australia

ANGFA membership provides a great opportunity to get hold of some rare and beautiful Rainbowfish but we realise that there may be many new to ANGFA that may not appreciate the extraordinary effort that has gone on to bring these amazing fish here.  What's covered here is some of the history that conveys how we got to where we are today and briefly discuss the Rainbowfish group’s goals to preserve these species into the future.
