In the case of coral reefs, supplying the home aquarium trade with locally cultivated corals can provide real economic benefits to small island communities, and thus, an incentive to protect the reefs from which the mother colonies are obtained.f
If made law, the West Hawaii rules package would impose bag and slot (size) limits on three species of fishes commonly fished for the aquarium trade, establish a 40-species “white list” of fishes permitted for aquarium take, and create a new fishery replenishment area in South Kona, where no aquarium fishing would be allowed.
