Dear Ivan,

Coral reefs in Vietnam are some of the most overfished in the world and the
reefs are subject to many other impacts. You may be interested in the

> Dear Coral-lers,

as one

>    Since 2001 members of our laboratory has been working in South Vietnam
> waters investigating coral reef community and all influinced factors. As
> knows, corals in Vietnam are hardly exploited by fishing, pollution and
> that why this region is very interesting to study effect of exploitation.
> supervisor, T.A. Brytaev, and I try to investigate the changes in coral
> associated communities as factors and indexes of coral community
>    Here, we are looking for scientist or societies, who are interested in
> cooperation in this topic. We are interested in any contacts with
> who make same investigations in other regoins.
>     And yet one. Could you help me to find organizations, societies or
> (their Internet pages), which are supporting and funding different joint
