I've been trying, without much success, to find current information about 
the commercial fishery for marine fishes for the aquarium trade.  I'm 
particularly interested in the techniques used by fisheries around the 
world, the impacts of fishing on reef ecosystems, the magnitude of the 
fisheries in different locations, and their economic values.   

Any information would be appreciated.  Please reply directly to me rather 
than the net.
