Abstract : There are concerns that extractive wild-capture practices might cause damages to marine environments. Evidence suggests that coral reef resources are, to some extent, resilient and that the trade can be managed sustainably, allowing it to contribute greatly to community livelihoods and revenue for governments. In the past few years, with the attractiveness of cultured products, aquaculture of marine ornamentals has begun to emerge as a viable commercial alternative for the Pacific region.
