We are currently re-investigating the collection of coral reef species (molluscs, hard corals, sponges, echinodems, fish etc) for the curio/souvenir trade with a view to producing an updated review and conservation guidelines. There is relatively little published information on the curio trade, but we suspect that there may be a good deal of grey literature and would be very interested to hear about this.
We are looking for published or unpublished information on fishery and socio-economic aspects, legislation, impacts, value etc etc and would be glad of reports, data and observations that people are willing to share.
Please respond to this e-mail address rather than the coral list and we will make available the completed review and guidelines asap.
Thanks and look forward to hearing from you,
Liz Wood and Sue Wells
