Shows and contests among the breeders for Poecilia reticulata (guppy) are being held all over the world by local and regional, national and international organisations of breeders.

Three major internatonal breeder organisations are presently existing.
Though three major breeder organisations are there the requirement of the day is a nodal international organisation with uniform rules for champion breeder competitions all over the world.
This can happen if the major breeder organisations merge or an international body brings them togeether to start a nodal breeder association.
Presently the norms differ from one guppy breeder organisation to another breeder organisation. In some breeder associations the membership is free whereas some charge fees.
