Hi Coral-L;

With the issues brought forth by the members of Coral-L on the matter of coral farming....and the end of MAC.......

Can any Member suggest a ways and means to institute a more realistic and viable Certifying entity - less having to fork out millions $$$ to open hands of national wise guys and deep pocket politicians....transparent, verifiable, and altruistic?  Or am I dreaming here?  

If its a "no go' - 'no way' = then lets end the international marine aquarium trade once and for all.  Lets support the ban of all marine life imports of any nature from anywhere.  If you want to have a marine aquarium on Guam - you have only Guam to get the live stock as NO Imports allowed!!!  Believe it or not..this was put forth once to GovGuam people...but killed off.

Any suggestions people?
