I've enjoyed the discussion regarding coral export/import. Now, I'd be  
very appreciative if folks could share any thoughts on the potential  
impacts from non-native corals imported through the aquarium trade  
into tropical or subtropical jurisdictions. How concerned should  
managers be about for example, live Pacific corals being imported into  
the Caribbean and sold in aquarium shops?
