Dasylluscape

Hawaiian dascyllus is a beauty to behold but aquarium trade “best practices” recommend using this iconic, endemic fish to test tank chemistry. That’s because the State of Hawaii allows dascyllus removal with no constraints, no limits, NO NOTTING! WHY would a state...
Reef Intramural

Reef Intramural

Hawaiian cleaner wrasse and Hawaiian dascyllus are found nowhere else in the world. BOTH get hammered by the voracious aquarium trade, but help may be on the way. SB 1240 will end aquarium permitting by the State of Hawaii. It has passed a floor vote and been posted,...

Frogfish Baby is a Blessed Event—

Or he vanishes to feed a voracious aquarium trade. What’s your preference? The State of Hawaii manages this vile extraction through a DLNR manager who is an aquarium collector. The (1-term) governor before this one had an aquarium collector as DLNR Director and the...

Hawaiian Spotted Puffer at Home

Hawaiian Spotted Puffer at Home

SB 1240 can end the aquarium trade in Hawaii—an illegal, amoral reef wildlife trade that claims gross revenue of $2 million for 200 collectors. They shout, “It’s sustainable!” but can’t define sustainability. They claim no poaching or coral damage. Testimony before...
Banded Reef Shrimp are Back on Maui

Banded Reef Shrimp are Back on Maui

We saw no reef shrimp for many years—until Maui County Council required aquarium collectors to stop animal abuse, comply with OSHA safety standards and file catch reports. THE AQ CROWD LEFT! That’s why Maui No Ka Oi! You can help all of Hawaii by sharing &...
