Herman, I have just left The Nature Conservancy's Asia/Pacific program to 
join the IUCN marine programme.  You may want to contact TNC Indonesia 
office re. the work of Bob Johannes and Mike Riepen on the life reef fish 
trade.  Re. reef recovery from damage, the short answer is 20-30 years or 
more.  The long answer depends on a lot of extrenuating human and natural 
circumstances.  There is a fair bit of literature on reef recovery which I 
hope some other respondents have referred you to. I will be interested to 
hear more of your results. Paul Holthus IUCN
