    No more Fiji corals

    First Hawaii, now Fiji. I got this link in an email from Coral magazine.

    This is going around for awhile already and on the moment all licenses and permits are still granted to collect or export to the US.
    In this thread you can read up a lot what is going on from the ppl that are first hand involved and the ministry in Fiji them self.
    Kind of a long read but if you really care about this hobby it's most defiantly worth it.

    Didnít read, but if itís that simple wouldnít that be a good thing environmentally? Create more aquaculture opportunities, less stress on an already dying ecosystem?

    If you stop the harvesting, then you stop the incentive for reseeding the reef and keeping the area cleaner and cared for. If you stop that then when it dies, it dies. People may curse the profit motive of the "hobby" but it leads and has led to learning and innovating new way of saving our natural resources.

    Anybody tried to browse fish in Live Aquaria lately. It has been about 6 months since I looked. None of my links work. Does it have something to do with this.

    It's all about the $$$$ - The fish/coral import/export is a billion dollar business it's not going anywhere till it's all wiped out.

    Dang...If live aquaria is all out of stock, I bet you it’s due to the Fiji thing. Anybody talk to Nick or Dennis? Pretty sure they both get stock from Fiji.

    I wish that ppl just took the time to read before they post.

    Just to clarify, this isn’t fish, just ROCK and CORAL!!

    To be more precise

    Quote(The Ministry of Fisheries has banned all harvesting, purchasing, sales and export of live coral and aquarium rock (also known as live rock, coral rock or fossil coral) from the 28th of December, 2017.
    All companies are to adhere to the following:
    1. All harvesting, purchasing and sales of live rocks and live coral are now banned, and no export permits would be processed by the ministry.
    2. The Convention in International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) Scientific Committee (SC) will be submitting to the Management Authority (MA) on 7th January 2018 that Live Coral and Live Rock is given a zero quota for 2018.
    3. The Ministry of Fisheries and both the CITES MA and SC would be supporting the development of other sustainable options, particularly the development of farmed or cultured coral.

    Btw, the word is that the ban is dismissed and coral trading is aloud again, also even though they had a coral ban corals were still transshipped from Fiji, last week we had 40 boxes in and yesterday we had some of these in a livesale already.

    I doubt they can stop it. We’ll see. Corals with be the new drug trade coming into the US.

    Paletta has every coral on the planet, I’m not worried. He frag what we need.
