     The attached press release from the American Samoa Coral Reef Task 
     Force states that local coral reefs are seriously overfished and that 
     corrective action (including banning scuba fishing) is needed now rather
     than delays for further study.  A full recovery plan should also include 
     a network of protected areas, community-based management, monitoring the
     complete harvest, and better enforcement.
