Regarding quinaldine, my understanding is that its use does have some  
negative impacts on reefs and reef fishes.  It stands to reason that any  
poison used to stun a fish is potent and will impact delicate  
ecosystems. Contact Nancy Daves at NMFS (301) 713-2319, and Georgia  
Kranmore (813) 570-5305 at NMFS for their studies.
