from what i have learned in my research is that cyanid is no longer used to collect fish. kind of a wives tale now. capture by strobe gives the collector a better survival rate as well. more live fish equals more money. from talking to a few LFS owners ( that i actually trust ) there are a few have used cyanide recently but wholesalers wont knowingly buy from them. it still happens i am sure, but much less than before. just as a side note on strobe collection, after i heard about this i used the same theory to catch a couple of unwanted crabs. i shined a very bright flashlight straight at them and they couldnt see me coming from above
