I have a feeling that you do t live anywhere near this and the livelihood your family has relied on is not being destroyed

This will be a great bonus to Chinese fishing fleets who dont care what Barak does

I personally can't wait for $250 yellow tangs

Yeah this is so great

So with that reasoning there should never be any wildlife preserves because the poachers don't care and it will inconvenience people with their choice of income?

If yellow tang prices increased then that would be great, because it would help provide incentive to work on the breeding program with more funding. It's the only long term solution to keeping yellow tangs in the hobby.

Yes the poachers will come and yes yellow tang prices may possibly go up but is it going to kill you to not have a yellow tang to help save a greater reef ecosystem? I don't think so and hopefully the captive breeding program is close to success at this point.

If it werent for lack of funding the captive breeding program would be finished by now. It was put on hiatus for years because there was no financial backing.

Hopefully this will lead the rest of the world to act. It isn't often I get to say I've liked something he's done (I've actually never said that) but this is a good thing, and I highly approve of this.

The political standpoints should be left out of this thread, as it will only create issues down the road.

Just focus on the project itself, not who did it or who would do it better.

This is good, and I don't appreciate the first reply. Clearly, some people are selfish and that what got us to our problems in the first place.
Hopefully we will make a difference one day.
