Founded in 1965, the International Fancy Guppy Association's (commonly known as the IFGA) mission is to promote the enjoyment and the techniques of breeding fancy guppies to the IFGA's show standards.
This is accomplished by providing information on the breeding and raising of quality guppies to the IFGA show standards through our clubs, shows and the IFGA website while bringing together other hobbyist of like minds.
Education for new and experienced hobbyists of all ages as well as the promotion of good breeding techniques through the use of shows are our top priorities.
We promote the hobby by providing assistance, managerial and technical support to individuals or groups in developing new clubs supporting the IFGA standards.
We conduct an annual meeting to bring together affiliated clubs and members to manage and plan the future of the IFGA organization.
We also host judging seminars and training to members to qualify as a IFGA judge and maintain the qualified judges ability to use the IFGA show standards.
We strive to offer a host of activities for our members. Membership with the IFGA comes with many benefits to hobbyists of all ages and experience. Members can join local affiliated clubs in their geography or start new clubs.
Affiliated clubs sponsor competitive shows throughout the United States with over 70 different color classes and often have an accompanying auction. We encourage all potential members and members to seek out their local clubs and come to our shows where you can meet some fellow guppy enthusiasts and make some lifelong friends!
Participating in shows is easy and brings a lot of reward! Members have the ability to mail their fish to the shows if the show is too far away or they are unable to make it.
Members earn yearly points and individual awards at IFGA shows that count towards year end class and breeder championships. We have a Master Breeder award our members can earn as well as various other titles within our organization. Please check out our shows section for all the details.
