  • Trade industry

    with all the recent news with trade industries shutting down the marine coral and fish trade. Hawaii and Fiji most recent. Do you think saltwater hobby is on the verge of being shutdown in the next 5-10 years?

    Prices will increase and we will see more captive breed stuff

      I hope the we will see more captive breed. At the same time I’m afraid the same entities involved will shutdown captive breeding with the argument that those fish should be released back into the wild as a means of conservation an repopulation. Not allowing the commercial sales of them.

        they do not do that for freshwater fish so I can not see them doing it to saltwater fish

          The latest news is that the so called experts that convinced authorities to shut down Hawaii falsified their findings. A new review will be done to determine if the ruling should remain.

                Looks like the Hawaii ban will remain though. ?

                  So far it seems that way. Seems counterproductive to close the most sustainable ornamental saltwater fishery in the world when data has show a constant increase in population of the fish we typically collect in the industry???

                    its all the animal rights groups, they have money to push to get it closed and keep it closed. Its said they are trying to ban world wide.

                      Just think what they could accomplish if they tried to make the world a better place instead of protecting animals that have been doing fine without their help.

                        Looks like Hawai’i is shut down again and looking bad for future resolution to trade. Also looks like Fiji is back in play. It’s a bad time to be in the saltwater hobby business. Really hope some companies jump on the breeding band wagon soon or this hobby is going to explode in expenses. What little fish available will go for a premium.

                              indonesia is because local government agencies cannot agree on how to handle permits. Hopefully, that gets fixed. For now, it will be US farm raised corals. Hopefully, prices do not increase on those.
