[Coral-List] Sea cucumber fishery in KenyaRuth,

Reef Check tracks a couple of species of holothurians collected and we do
have some data from Africa available at www.ReefCheck.org/datamanagement.
The SPC publication on this subject may be the best field guide. See their

  Subject: [Coral-List] Sea cucumber fishery in Kenya

  I don't know if anyone is able to help me with this, but I am due to go
  out to Kenya in under a week to carry out social research on the
  holothurian fishery in Kenya. I am trying to get hold of any information
  (especially pictures) regarding the species which they fish and then
  export to the Asian market.

  Any information would be gratefully appreciated

  Many thanks
