Thanks to everyone for the comments...all sides have been heard and are being pondered. I also hope that the comments keep coming.
I would also like to say a special thank you to lando and to rocketSeason for bringing to the front of everyones minds something that is usually tucked away somewhere in everyones minds. Natural reef conservation shouldn't be something that we think about or agree with. As people who love this lifestyle we have been blessed to be involved in (my wife might say cursed...lol) we should be active in doing everything that we can as individuals to promote reef conservation.
Thank you again to lando and rocketSeason!
