To Coral researchers:

I recently had a question posed to me concerning the harvest of
precious corals for jewelry.  Can anyone tell me if this is still
permitted in US waters.  I know Hawaii used to have a big
black/red/pink/orange coral business.

Any comments are appreciated.

1995 was the warmest year on record & world grain harvest was the smallest since 1988.
