"Chris your concern is noted but as a responsible aquarist and a Green Party of Canada candidate all aspects of the ecology of the ocean must be taken into account. I myself am a vegetarian as commercial fishing is what accounts for 90% of the fish deaths that occur in the ocean. The populations are dwindling because people continue to drive cars and acidify the ocean as well as place dangerous chemicals into it. The marine hobby does have an impact of course but by all estimates and calculations if 1% of the bi catch from commercial trawling was to be put into the marine aquarium trade it would be a world wide over saturation very quickly and prices would plummet very quick. Those fish are left on the decks of those comercial fishing boats where they are allowed to suffocate to death before being sorted and then thrown back in the ocean. Yes cyanide and dynamite was used in the ocean a lot in the past but laws attempt to prevent this now and it is much much less common. If we are really to take care of our oceans we must stop commercial trawling and drag nets and use methods that only catch what we want as a food source. Also reduce or eliminate the burning of fossil fuels which is causing acidification of the ocean and destroying the base of the entire food chain on the planet such as phyto-plankton. The oceans stability is the planets stability and the planets survival! "
