Subject: marbio: Re: Coral Harvesting for jewelry
To Coral researchers:
I recently had a question posed to me concerning the harvest of
precious corals for jewelry. Can anyone tell me if this is still
permitted in US waters. I know Hawaii used to have a big
black/red/pink/orange coral business.
Any comments are appreciated.

1995 was the warmest year on record & world grain harvest was the smallest since 1988.
