Special Report from Philippines on Marine Aquarium Trade Data

Some of you may be wondering where I’ve been lately, as I’ve yet to publish a single blog entry at GoodCatchBlog.com so far this month. I’ve actually been quite busy reporting from the Philippines on a fishery sector I’ve covered frequently over the past six years–the marine aquarium fishery and trade.

The Philippines is the most important source country for marine aquarium fishes, and I was fortunate enough to recently travel on assignment to the Philippines and produce a special report for Reefs.com on an initiative to streamline and improve data collection at the point of export. My special report is being published as a series of videos, and I invite you to click on the following links to learn more. Parts 1-3 are currently available with a couple more segments to come over the next week.
