NANFA is an organization made up of home and professional aquarists, university and other professional researchers, conservationists, anglers and naturalists. As its name implies, the group is dedicated to the study and conservation of North America's native fishes.

The North American Native Fishes Association (NANFA) has created a cash award program to support development and implementation of educational projects featuring native fish ecology and conservation. Thanks to a generous matching grant from the Corcoran family, this program will provide NANFA members with up to $2000 every other year for environmental education projects such as:

  • Production and distribution of educational materials (print and electronic media)
  • Education based aquatic surveys
  • Lecturing expenses
  • Nature Center exhibits
  • School materials and displays
  • Field and laboratory supplies
  • Teacher training workshops

The award was established in memory of past NANFA President Gerald C. Corcoran, who stressed public education regarding the continent's native fishes.
