Hi Coral-L Members,
In reference to this Reference:
Wabnitz, C., Taylor, M., Green, E., Razak, T. 2003. From Ocean to Aquarium. UNEP-WCMC,Cambridge, UK.
Can anyone refer any updated data at least concerning the live aquarium coral trade? It's now 2009 and the data the above pub notes is to 2001. CITES data is vague and complicated to summarize.
I may be in error here but I may have read somewhere (?) that the marine aquarium trade has 'increased by some 500%.' Can anyone point me to the pub or reference?
