No, I've been to the auction for maybe 5 years. You don't need to be a member to sell or buy.Hello Hydrocynus.
There is no registration fee if you register early. The general public can buy, but you must be a member to sell. We do encourage people to join the VAHS club. 25% of the selling price goes back to the club to cover overhead and the balance is usually donated to a selected fish conservation club/society (ie Project Piaba). I hope that answers some of your questions.
