Continue the award in memory of the father of the Discus breeding, Dr. E. Schimidt Focke, becoming a tradition in the frame of NapoliAquatica.
This award have a double meaning: Remember and celebrate.
It wants to honor the memory of those who have devoted their lifetime to lay the foundations for this hobby and celebrate those who contribute with their effort to structure, disseminate, disclose and sow the seed of this passion in the world with seriousness, dedication and professionalism.
This year, when we had to decide together with the owner of NaQ the assignment of this prize, we hadn’t to think too much.
Among our guest was in fact present the man who is one of the main promoter in the creation of a Discus World Congress, aimed at improving competition and thus the categorizations and evaluation systems.
With great effort, both in the past and now he has always devoted its expertise and most of his career in event with similar purposes, for the benefit of the entire world community of Discus lovers.
It was a real honor for us to assign this prize to Jeffrey Tan.
Mr. Carmelo Aricò
