Wow. Lets hope this trend doesn't continue. First Hawaii, now this?
In doing some more reading it seems as though it's being positioned as a government takeover more than an actual ban. I guess we'll wait and see.
Since there's only one company doing exporting on the islands they probably think they can take them over and do it themselves.
Here was an update from Coral Magazine a few days ago.
As long as #3 is allowed to happen, fiji will be fine and what I hope most responsible exporters are already doing.
Agreed, but there are apparently a number of inconsistencies with the ministry statements after that about what #3 really is.
The potential positive is companies in other areas actively trying to set up better sustainable aquatics programs in their respective areas to avoid being completely shut down.
As for not farming live rock that is becoming a thing of the past anyway don't you think? For the same reasons people go bare bottom. I am less concerned with porous rock as a direct result of better equipment for aquarium care and longevity of the system as a whole.
This means no more pukani rock, no more tonga branch, no more shelf rock, no more fiji rock.
I could live without fiji rock, it was just boulders anyway.
For someone that's interested in unique aquascapes and structures, this sucks. I've found some really cool tonga rock before, and the ability to make caves and tunnels through your pukani rock really made a difference. Now we're stuck with man made cement rock, and reef saver.
I've got a fantastic idea to 3D print reef rock, but need an investor with deep pockets
You just got my head spinning with all the possibilities you'd have with that.
So... Trump is in Fiji now???
How many more of those do you need???
And if you're thinking about what I'm thinking, it would be cool!!!
I was wrong there are a handful of exporters in Fiji.
The 3D printer I'd need is 20k, and apparently goes through printing heads pretty fast. The printing material is not commercially available, and the university that developed it won't return my emails.
So I'm stuck for now.
