Item description for While Stocks Last: The Live Reef Food Fish Trade (ADB Pacific Studies series) by Asian Development Bank...
Live fish have long been traded around Southeast Asia as a luxury food item. Fish captured in coral reefs entered this trade only in the recent years leading to 2000 but, because of their superior taste and texture, have become the most valued fish in the trade.
This book, produced in 2003, is a result of the work done by nine independent scientists who wrote on specific topics within their individual expertise in live reef food fish (LRFF) trade issues. What emerges is an extremely worrying image: the LRFF trade has caused degradation of the resources on which the trade depends and, as a consequence, has to move farther and farther from the main market centers in order to continue supplying them.
While Stocks Last: The Live Reef Food Fish Trade provides scientific evidence for the need to curb and manage the capture of wild live reef food fish, and proposes ways to help entrepreneurs and fishers reform the trade based on limiting fish capture and hatchery rearing the fish.
