Greetings coral listers,

Last September and October (as part of IYOR) a Newcastle University
expedition studied the status of the coral reefs around the Port of
Massawa in Eritrea (NE Africa) including:

*Baseline ecological surveys
*The structure and operation of the aquarium fish trade
*Simple nutrient analysis and investigations into potential

The completed report will be printed in the next couple of weeks and
we have a limited amount of funds left over to produce and distribute
copies of the report. If any of you would be interested, or knows
anyone who would benefit from the report, please contact us and we
will try to send out a copy.

We are already planning to send copies to the following organisations:
World Conservation Union, East Africa
Marine Conservation Society (UK)

A sincere thanks to all list members who generously sent us useful
advice and encouragement during the planning stages of the project
over a year ago.


Tim Daw

P.S. We will also be attending the Reef Conservation UK meeting in
London on 9th of November.
