After a gap of a few years, GCCA is once again hosting an auction!
An auction allows you to SELL fish that you want to move out and also to BUY fish to bring home. It's fun and fast-paced!

Doubletree Hotel Downers Grove

IMPORTANT: Go to our November 2018 Auction Rules page full details on how to register as a buyer and seller.
Essentially, you register each bag of fish online where you can list the species/quantity and upload a picture of the fish. Uploading a picture is optional, but experience tells us this will result in a higher price for your fish.
First go to our November 2018 Auction Rules to register. Yo u do not need to provide a credit card or any other financial info.
When you arrive on the day of the auction, you be given a bidder number and bidder card. Listen to the auctioneer and raise your card to bid.
We've created a helpful guide that walks you through the process, see:
