How fish get from the reefs to your aquarium...

posted by TFAdmin in Saltwater Fish

Interesting article by National Geographic on how fish get to the LFS and ultimately how unregulated the industry is...

Wasn't expecting this...

"No centralized database tracks how many fish are taken from reefs, for instance, and little information exists about how the capture of fish—sometimes by the destructive use of cyanide and dynamite—affects their numbers in the wild."

This is definitely eye-opening. I had no idea about the process. It is shocking to learn that most of the procedure steps are undocumented! As much as I love salt water aquariums, this is going to make me think twice before deciding to get one in the future.
