Setting Up Successful Aquariums video      7/4/16
Hi Bob,
<Jimbo!>
OK, its ready. Let me know if you like / approve of this.
Here is the You Tube link >> https://youtu.be/Zs74xRTm4hs  <<. You can place this link, or the Embedded version into your WWM web site. It is listed as UNLISTED within You Tube so the only people who will see this version are those who you allow to see the link. Does that make sense?
<Yes and it is FAB!>
I tried uploading a second copy so I could link and monitor its views separately from LA Fishguys but You Tube wouldn’t allow an exact duplicate. Can I add in some MyFishTank, Jelliquarium and WWB promotions to a copy of this and upload that copy so as to track its results separately?
<Sure mate. Thank you Jim. BobF>

Re: Film in your store with Bob Fenner        5/31/16

Help with Newspaper article about aquarium regulation/SeaWorld       3/10/16
Good morning,
<Richard>
My name is Richard Webner, and I'm a business reporter at the Express-News in San Antonio, Texas. I'm working on an article looking at the state and federal regulation process for SeaWorld parks - I've submitted lots of FOIA
requests for inspection reports, marine mammal data sheets, etc.
My fellow reporter, Peggy O'Hare, said Bob Fenner is knowledgeable about public aquariums and might be a good source for the story. I was wondering if I could have a phone interview with him so he could share his knowledge
of the regulatory system for aquariums and what kinds of public documents might be available.
Please let me know if Bob is available to talk sometime.
<Mmm; my experience is not recent, but I will grant you my perspective.
This AM perhaps, or early PM; 858 397 XXXX. Am PST/CA. BobF>
Thanks

Promotion of Quitting Smoking (on WWM)     11/2/15
Bob,
<Jess>
I hope you had a great Halloween! I was wondering, do you think you could support a new group I started volunteering for? They're called Quit Smoking Community and I decided to join them because they are all volunteers who are passionate about ending smoking around the world. Their website is at https://quitsmokingcommunity.org - could you add them to your page and show your support for them too?
<As much as I am a fan of folks not smoking (my mum, a smoker, died a bit early from emphysema), not on WWM; we only promote topics/subjects of aquatics interest.>
Thank you!
Jessica
<Cheers, Bob Fenner>
Re: Other topics on WWM        11/3/15

Thank you so much, Bob! It's always nice to chat with you :)
Thanks,
Jessica
<Cheers Jess. BobF>

Fresh content for wetwebmedia.com      10/22/15
Hi there
<Jules>
I'm Juliette, I'm a freelance writer and I'm contacting you because I thought you might be interested in an article for your site #company#?
<Mmm; we do buy content; but... such work is pretty specialized>
Before I became a writer I had a pretty varied career, initially working in the health sector as a nutritionist, before moving into mental health and addiction work. It was a great time for me, but once I became a mom, I decided the best thing to do would be to step back and look after my own family, and work from home as a freelance writer. I now write on lots of
different subjects from business and money matters through to current affairs and health.
<Uhh; none of the above, unless they relate directly to ornamental aquatics.... See WWM Re examples>
I'd love to hear back from you regarding an article. You could choose the topic and I can send a sample, free of charge, if I'm allowed to mention a partner as a resource. If not, then I leave you with my best wishes
Kind regards
Juliette
<Cheers, Bob Fenner>

SAIA Dory Campaign       7/10/15
Dear Bob and Crew,
<Christiane>
I hope you are doing great and have received notification on our campaign start to prepare the film release of ‘Finding Dory’ in summer 2016.
<Have>
As we are to look at Dory from all angles and the campaign focuses on awareness raising, we are inviting you to contribute with an article or other publications to the campaign.
<Some of my pix of Paracanthurus and all my article input are archived on WWM. You/SAIA are welcome to any/all's use>
We have won several contributors already (among them Prof. Dr. Ellen Thaler with a article on Dory’s behavior and Dr. Ike Olivotto focusing on breeding of Dory), but as this is a year long campaign we certainly welcome more contributions and as many as possible views on the topic.
In a German hobbyist forum we had started a ‘Dory Beauty Contest’ and received pictures, graphics and stories of hobbyists and ‘their’ Dories in home aquaria. Not sure if WetWebMedia would/could do this in the US?
<Am concerned re this approach in the U.S. Don't know if this would have the effect of discouraging YTB Tang popularity here>
Feel free to develop your own ideas about your contribution. All are very welcome.
Many thanks in advance & Kind regards,
Christiane

chucks addiction website      7/5/15
Hi,
I am hoping you can tell me what happened to chuck’s addiction website. It is gone. I am hoping it is temporary but it doesn’t appear to be. I hope Charles and Linda are ok. I would appreciate any information.
Thank you, Jaki Kalionzes
<Don't know. Bob Fenner>
Re: chucks addiction website      7/5/15

Thank you for the fast response! Although it is not as big a deal as if WetWebMedia suddenly disappeared, I still think is is a big deal and I am surprised that more people aren’t concerned and curious.
<Maybe they're just waiting and hoping. Sometimes these issues arise from the hosting company>
There was helpful info and great photos as well.
Thanks again, Jaki
See at ReefAPalooza again I hope!

Aquatics Euphoria: Bob Fenner Speaks On WetWebMedia!        3/31/15

Attn Bob Fenner- some sad news; Robert Rofen passing         3/3/15
Bob-
<Hey Ray>
As a fellow long-time person associated with the tropical fish trade and individual who has a mutual career-long admiration and respect for Dr. Rofen, I hate to have to inform you that he past away last Thursday.
<Ahh!<
I just got a call from a old friend and colleague from a tropical fish supplier in the bay area, just a short distance from Kordon, and I thought of letting you know. I apologize if you have already heard the news.
<I have not; and thank you for sending this note along>
When I started in the fish trade back in the early seventies, Dr. Rofen was there to help me frequently sort between the science and the hype and clutter associated with the commercial fish trade. He was always there to take my call or quick to answer an email. It was Dr. Rofen who led me to know George Blasiola, among the most respected and influential people I have know in the trade.
Although Dr. Rofen lived a long life, I will miss not knowing he is still up there at his desk reading and answering emails, running his business and I presume adding aquatic fish books to his legendary collection. I understand he did this up to his last day.
Ray Meyers
Monterey, CA
<Ah yes... was a given "joke" amongst friends in common that Dr. Bob, even after selling Kordon/Novalek, continued to come into "work" everyday. A fine person and keen scholar, entrepreneur in our interests. Cheers, Bob Fenner>

Thailand is holding its first internal ornamental fish expo, TIOFE 2015


The Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives and the Department of Fisheries informed us that they are in preparation for the Exhibition of Thai Ornamental Fish Products, to be held at the international level for the first time, and are ready to announce their plan of becoming the center of the world’s high quality ornamental fish production.

In January 2015 at the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, Mr. Chavalit Chookajorn, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives and Dr. Jumpon Sanguansin, the Director-General of the Department of Fisheries jointly announced the opening of the Thailand International Ornamental Fish Expo 2015 (TIOFE 2015) which is going to be held this June with the expectation to push Thailand forward to be the center of business and production of world-class ornamental fish by 2016, according to the ornamental fish strategies 2013 to 2016.

Dr. Jumpon Sanguansin, the Director-General of the Department of Fisheries, revealed that Thailand has been famous for, and internationally accepted as, one of the worlds’ top-ranked sources of ornamental fish for over half a decade and is now expanding year by year. That forces the government and private sectors to adapt to the changes in the ornamental fish business world and to cooperate to develop increasing varieties of ornamental fish, adding more value with the quality improvements needed by the world market. They will launch the development and adjustment of new breeds of ornamental fish, including changes to achieve good and standardized production systems to support the needs of the market. Moreover, support and development of the strength of farmers, traders and importer networks should be undertaken by the Department of Fisheries as the government agency that promotes ornamental fish strategies 2013 to 2016. The goals are as follows; all types of ornamental fish production should increase by 8% each year, new breeds of ornamental fish should be developed giving 2 new types each year, farmers should earn at least 120,000 baht per family per year, 200 new farmers should register in the system per year, 50 more groups of farmers should get together to make a production and trading base in the form of a community enterprise or cooperative, ornamental fish export value should increase by not less than 5% per year, the amount of farms meeting production and export standards should increase by 20 farms per year and the internal ornamental fish markets should grow by 1 market per year. Some of the high-value ornamental fish for export are; Fighting Fish, Goldfish, Carp, Guppy and Flower Horn Fish.

The Director-General of the Department of Fisheries also plans to support this beautiful aquatic animal business by adding export value to bring revenue into our country and support Thai farmers in improving their products to meet international standards. So, the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives and the Department of Fisheries, have decided to hold the Thailand International Ornamental Fish Expo 2015 (TIOFE 2015) from 2 June to 5 June 2015 at the Government Complex, Ratthaprasasanabhakti Building (Building B), Chaeng Watthana Road, Bangkok.

An ornamental fish contest, with the highest numbers of contestants in the world, will be held at the fair, including the exhibition of more than 200 types of exported ornamental fish, such as Goldfish, Guppy, Ray, Pompadour and Flower Horn Fish. There will also be an exhibition of Betta Fish competition, a celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the Birth of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Siridhorn and the sale of ornamental fish from farms at good prices. More than 2,000 visitors are expected resulting in a cash flow of hundreds of millions of baht.

New Saltwater fishing forum-Free Advertising   1/3/15
Blue Chum Salt Water Fishing World
Hello Salt Water Angle!
We are Looking for Contributors and Beta testers with a Salt Water Passion to test our new Salt Water Fishing forum and website : Blue Chum Salt Water Fishing World :
http://mailtrack.me/tracking/raWzMz50paMkCGR3Amp5ZwN4ZGpzMKWjqzA2pzSaqaR9ZGR
1AQt3AmxzrKMurUMkCGDmZmL4ZGL0AGOP
Our new Salt Water fishing forum is open for testing. We are very early in beta test mode! , and will be evolving and growing in order to reach our goal of becoming a global place for the Salt Water angler to freely
discuss, learn, dream and live their passion. First let's begin with a famous quote:
"Rome wasn't created in a day"
Since the forum is new and we have not asked anyone to test or sign up yet , the isn't any activity . Our goal is to find 30-50 solid contributors from specific areas and start building the forum before we open to the general public.
How did Blue Chum Start?
Over the Years, as I desired information about my true passion-Salt Water Fishing, I have come across and used many fishing sites and forums. What I have found is this:
Some I "like" and use a lot.
Some are ok and I use a little
Some are not well organized and structured-Most are not Salt Water specific but some are location specific
Many have tight censorship (you cant say anything bad about sport boats/charter/tackle makers/sponsors or divulge exact fishing locations !)
Some are in for the $$ and not for the Love of Fishing-and have become ad machines!
I understand that most forums have to earn a living after awhile and that isn't a problem. It's the free speech restrictions, up sell and "secret" stuff that has me in a fluster sometimes.
So without any more babbling ,here are some of our goals:
A forum for Uncensored reviews and discussions of all things related to Salt water fishing-whether it's reviews on Party boats ,Charter Boats, Tackle makers or even a country's fishing laws.
A forum to freely discuss fishing locations and techniques with the goal of helping others
Great weather info with Free SST charts/Chlorophyll /Fishing locations(coming soon!)
Review and guides to all Sport boat/Party/Charter boat fleet with a rating system(coming soon!)
Up to the minute reports from the fleets via News feeds and live reports(no more having to go to ten sites to get current info)
Cutting edge Classifieds to buy, sell or trade Tackle, Boats etc. (coming soon!)
Learn from our Community and adapt to what the community wants and needs.
Have fun here and live and share our passion of Salt Water Fishing together!
We are looking for fellow anglers who have the same desire, passion and knowledge to share information in an open forum setting and help grow the community to a global standard.
We are especially looking for help with coverage in US locations:
NJ,NY,Mass,Delmarva,Carolinas, Florida, Gulf coast, Wash and Oregon, Alaska, Hawaii
International Locations:
Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Caribbean, The Med, Australia , Asia and South Pacific.

<Dave , as you and I talked on the phone re the HSUS is largely a money-making scam. You stated some four cents out of a dollar actually go to shelters et al., I've heard it's more like one cent. As I mentioned, interested/concerned folks should volunteer at local efforts and/or direct their giving to them. Oh, want to ask: would you mind if I archive our corr. on WWM?

Bob,
The county council sure assumes a lot in the first few paragraphs. David
<Yes; from the get-go... Am wondering if you know who exactly is in favor of shutting down the trop. trade there? As the points in this Bill are unfounded, non-factual, it's obvious that whomever is promoting it really just wants to see the industry fail. Bob Fenner>
Re: CC Bill 318
Bob,
It's a shut down bill plain and simple. SB and Umberger failed to get the state to act so now they are hitting on the CC with the support of the US Humane Society. They just believe in putting fish in captivity. D.

COUNTY OF HAWAII STATE OF HAWAII
BILL NO. 318

ORDINANCE NO.

AN ORDINANCE AMENDING CHAPTER 4, ARTICLE 1, SECTION 4- 1 AND ADDING

A NEW SECTION TO ARTICLE 4 OF THE HAWAII COUNTY CODE 1983 ( 2005

EDITION, AS AMENDED), RELATING TO TREATMENT OF AQUARIUM LIFE.

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE COUNTY OF HAWAII:

SECTION 1. Findings. The Council finds that numerous factors including prolonged starvation, keeping aquarium life in less than one gallon of water for transport purposes, and carrying aquarium life in certain manners cause stress to aquarium life and contribute to their mortality rate.

Therefore, to reduce mortalities and improve the welfare of aquarium life held within  Hawai` i County to be sold as pets, the Council acknowledges and affirms the need to prohibit certain practices that increase stress and contribute to mortality.

Accordingly, to ensure the improved welfare of aquarium life held within Hawai` i County to be sold as pets and to prevent cutting short the normal lifespan of aquatic life, the Council must prohibit prolonged starvation, require a minimum water volume for transport purposes, and prohibit carrying or causing aquarium life to be carried in a manner that is likely to result in injury or death to the aquarium life.

SECTION 2. Chapter 4, article 1, section 4- 1 of the Hawai` i County Code 1983 ( 2005 Edition, as amended), is amended by amending the definition of" animals" to read as follows:

Animals," unless provided otherwise, include but are not limited to those animals that are customary and usual pets such as dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, honeybees, and other beasts which are maintained on the premises of a dwelling unit and kept by the resident of a dwelling unit solely for personal enjoyment and companionship, such as, without limitation, for a hobby, for legal sporting activities and for guarding of property; animals exclude aviary game birds [ and fish] as defined in the Hawai` i Revised Statutes.

Animal shall further mean any " animal," " farm animal," or " poultry" as those terms are defined in [ section 1. 31.] this section."

SECTION 3. Chapter 4, article 4 of the Hawai`i County Code 1983 ( 2005 Edition, as amended), is amended by adding a new section to be appropriately designated and to read as follows:

Section 4- . Treatment of aquarium life to be sold for aquarium use.

a) As used in this section, unless the context clearly requires otherwise:

Aquarium life" means any type of saltwater fish, mollusk, crustacean, arthropod, invertebrate, or other animal harvested for aquarium use from Hawai`' s marine environment.

Aquarium use" means to hold aquarium life alive in a state of captivity as pets, or for public exhibition or display, or for sale for these purposes.

Sell" means to transfer, prescribe, give, or deliver to another, or to leave, barter, or exchange with another, or to agree to do the same to another for consideration."

b) Any person who sells aquarium life for aquarium use is prohibited from treating aquarium life in an inhumane manner. For the purposes of this section, inhumane treatment of aquarium life includes:

1) Intentionally or knowingly withholding food from aquarium life for more than twenty- four hours;

2) Transporting or causing to be transported within the County aquarium life in less than one gallon of water per each aquarium life with intent to move the aquarium life outside of the County; or

3) Intentionally, knowingly, recklessly, or negligently carrying or causing to be carried in or upon any vehicle or other conveyance aquarium life within the County in a manner that is likely to result in the injury or death of the aquarium life.

c) This section shall not apply:

1) To any person exercising those rights customarily and traditionally exercised for subsistence, cultural, and religious purposes and possessed by ahupua' a tenants who are descendants of native Hawaiians who inhabited the Hawaiian Islands prior to 1778, as protected by article XII, section 7, of the Hawai` i State Constitution;

2) To any government or nonprofit agency that specializes in the holding of aquarium life in a state of captivity within the County for education or scientific study, provided that the educational activity or scientific study shall not involve the sale of aquarium life; or

3) To any person possessing aquarium life for the purpose of transit through any port or airport within the County, provided that the aquarium life remains within the boundaries of the airport or port at all times while in the County.

d) Any person convicted of a violation of this section shall be guilty of a petty misdemeanor and shall be subject to a fine of not more than $ 1, 000, or imprisoned of not more than thirty days, or both.

e) Nothing in this section shall be construed to prohibit lawful fishing, including the lawful harvesting of aquatic life to be used for bait for fishing, for human consumption, or for sale for human consumption."

Emily Munday's Testimony‏
November 17, 2012
R e : Testimony in Opposition to Bill 318
Aloha County Council Members,
I am writing in opposition to Bill 318 regarding the treatment of aquarium life.
For my master’s research at Washington State University, I studied the West Hawaii aquarium trade from 2010-2012. Part of my study focused on holding and transport of live yellow tang in the West Hawaii aquarium trade.

My research on fish holding and transport indicated that the practices implemented by Hawaiian fish exporters do not cause mortality in yellow tang. In June of 2012, I collaborated with fishers and exporters in Kona, and caught 60 yellow tang from the reef, held them in a working export facility, and shipped them from Kona, HI to Portland, OR. The fish were then transported to the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, OR where they resided for 6 months. My study shows 100% survival rate of these tangs during collection, holding in the export facility, air transport, and after a 6-month holding period. In fact, the fish have now become part of an exhibit at the Hatfield Marine Science Center about sustainability in the aquarium trade and I have received no reports of mortality after 2.5 years.

In addition, I now would like to specifically address Sections 4b1 and 4b2:

Section 4b1 would prohibit the withholding of food from aquarium life for 24h. In my study, fish were withheld food for 96h in the export facility, and an additional 35h during transport. Withholding food serves a very important purpose for fish transport. Withholding food prevents fish from fouling their bags. If they are unable to “clean out” their system prior to transport, they will foul their bags, creating a buildup of ammonia, which is toxic to fish. Therefore, withholding food is a best practice to be used prior to shipping fish and any regulation prohibiting food withholding is uninformed and would be detrimental to fish health.

Section 4b2 would prohibit transport of fish in less than one gallon of water. In my study, aquarium exporters used the standard volume of water to transport the tang, and discussed above, no mortality occurred. The requirement of a gallon of water for fish transport is unnecessary and unfounded.

I would like to speak to the sustainability of the Hawaii aquarium trade. The exhibit I helped create at the Hatfield explains the practices of the Hawaii aquarium trade, and how Hawaii’s trade differs from other areas of the world. If we take a global perspective, Bill 318 is damaging to the ocean. This is because the demand for aquarium fish is not decreasing, and such a bill would simply shift the demand for aquarium fish from Hawaii where they are collected using nondestructive methods, to places like the Philippines where fishers regularly use cyanide to stun and capture fish and have a tremendously negative impact on reefs there. Though this might seem like just a local or state issue, the reality is that the aquarium trade is a global trade and Hawaii contributes a sustainably sourced product to aquarium fish hobbyists.

Thank you for hearing my testimony.
Sincerely,
Emily S. Munday, M.S.

Walsh Testimony
<And Bill's here. B>
Aloha County Council Members,

My name is Dr. William Walsh and I am submitting testimony in opposition to Bill 318 relating to the treatment of aquarium life which is scheduled for hearing by the Committee on Agriculture, Water and Energy Sustainability on Nov. 18, 2014.

In my capacity as the West Hawai’i Aquatic Biologist for the Division of Aquatic Resources I have been involved in the management and biological monitoring of the West Hawai’i aquarium fishery for over 15 years. While this bill may be well intended in terms of reducing mortalities in the aquarium fishery it actuality is neither necessary nor will it be beneficial. In all likelihood it would prove detrimental to the treatment of aquarium life.

There are no studies, reports or empirical evidence indicating that current shipping practices in the Hawai’i aquarium industry are causing undue levels of shipping mortality. Two studies which have examined shipping mortality in Hawai’i (based on survey interviews) reported low levels of mortality ranging from 0.75-2% (Dierking, 2005) to 2-3% (van Poollen and Obara, 1984). In a 2012 study by Washington State University Graduate Student, Emily Munday, 60 Yellow Tang caught in West Hawai’i, held in an export facility, then shipped from Kona to Portland Oregon and subsequently held in captivity for nearly 6 months showed a 100% survival rate.

Scientific studies which have indeed found high levels of mortality among aquarium fishes have typically been conducted in remote areas with poor handling capabilities often involving the use of toxic collecting chemicals such as cyanide. That is clearly not the case in Hawai’i. As noted by a report from the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) “Where organisms are collected, stored and handled by adequately trained individuals, and transported in suitable conditions, estimated levels of fish mortality have been as low as a few percent” (Wabnitz et al. 2002). All indications are that this is the case in Hawai’i.

I’ll leave it to others actually involved in handling and shipping aquarium fishes to point out why the provisions of this bill would actually harm fish being shipped. The key is relatively simple; keeping the shipping water unfouled and well oxygenated – not a specific volume and certainly not requiring that the fish be fed before shipping.

In conclusion I would like to share with you some of the results of our latest monitoring efforts as they relate to the issue at hand. Two species, the Yellow Tang and Kole make up over 93% of all aquarium fish caught in West Hawai’i. Since the no-aquarium collecting Fish Replenishment Areas (FRAs) were established in 1999 (protecting 35% of the coastline), the numbers of Yellow Tang have increased in the FRAs by almost 65% while not significantly decreasing in the remaining Open Areas. In the 30’-60’ depth range alone, the numbers of Yellow Tang in West Hawai’i have increased by 1.3 million fish. Similarly Kole populations have increased not only in the FRAs (by 24%) but also in the Open Areas as well (by 28%). Kole populations in the same depth range have increased by over 2 million fish! Clearly resource management efforts are working in West Hawai’i.
Mahalo for your attention and I look forward to your continuing support.

Dear Honorable Members of the Hawai’i County Council:  

On behalf of the 228 accredited member institutions of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), I would like to take this opportunity to express our serious concerns regarding County of Hawai’i Bill 318 that would purportedly improve the welfare of aquarium life within Hawai’i County by prohibiting appropriate fasting for transported animals and establishing an arbitrary minimum water volume for transport purposes.  We respectfully submit that if this bill were to pass, it would become impossible to ship fish and aquatic invertebrates in a safe and humane manner and thus, greatly impact the ability of accredited aquariums and zoos to educate and inspire millions of visitors with compelling exhibits that showcase the natural beauty of marine life and habitats, including coral reefs and coral reef fishes.  

AZA is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of accredited zoos and aquariums in the areas of animal care and husbandry, conservation, education, science and recreation.  With over 185 million visitors to 228 accredited zoos and aquariums, AZA’s focus on connecting people and animals provides a critical link to helping animals in their native habitats.

AZA zoos and aquariums are committed to conserving the world’s oceans for future generations of Americans and people around the globe. We do this by educating our audiences about issues related to ocean health, and encourage them to join us in reducing threats to fragile ocean ecosystems and wildlife. This is very important as a recent National Research Council study found that people learn as much as 90% of their science in informal settings such as accredited zoos and aquariums.  We strongly believe that our message of respect, wonder and appreciation of the natural world contributes significantly to coral reef conservation and management.  

There are very few fish species that cannot be safely fasted.  For nearly all species, a two or more day fast is routinely done to clear the gut of food so the transport bag will not be fouled.  Fouling leads to toxic levels of ammonia, and reduced concentrations of oxygen.  Furthermore, non-fasted fishes have higher oxygen demands thus exacerbating the problem.  The provisions of this bill will not improve the standards for animal welfare; rather they will have the opposite effect leading to higher rates of mortality.  

Regarding the minimum water volume requirement, there are no published reports or scientific studies that we are aware of that support the proposed one-gallon per each “aquarium life” standard as specified in the bill.  This is an arbitrary and capricious “standard” which appears to be designed solely to eliminate all wild fish collections in the County.  If animal welfare is the true intent of this bill, it would be extended to cover the welfare of aquacultured aquarium life.  Those animals will continue to be shipped using recognized industry standards including fasting and appropriate water volumes for each species.  Passage of this legislation, will not only limit a fully sustainable trade, but would prevent the normal and ethical transport between zoological facilities under the best standards of practical care….including Hawaii-based zoos, aquariums and research institutions.  

The AZA community views itself as potential partners with the State of Hawai’i and its counties. We have the well-documented ability to speak to hundreds of millions of visitors annually about marine conservation needs. AZA accredited institutions agree that a common-sense regulatory approach that governs the humane take, the humane after-capture husbandry and humane and ethical transport of coral reef species in a fully sustainable manner, is a positive step in enhancing the coral reef fishery populations throughout the State. It is also important that legislation affecting this industry follow the best-methods standards established over decades of proven techniques and research.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to provide input on these important decisions. 

 

Respectfully,

Robert (Bob) Fenner's input re Bill 318 provisions‏
December 19, 2014
Re Bill 318

Aloha County Council Members,

I am writing in opposition to Bill 318 regarding two elements concerning treatment of aquarium life.

I am a long-time investigator, academic and writer on issues of natural history, and use of native aquatic life. I am the author of The Conscientious Marine Aquarist, as well as more than a dozen other printed works on aquatic life, and several hundred articles in the field. My position paper on live yellow tang use in the West Hawaii aquarium trade can be found archived on my site: http://wetwebmedia.com/YTangUpdateArt.htm

My involvement in the ornamental marine trade spans the last fifty some years, mostly here in the USA. Further, I have owned properties in West Hawaii, and been involved in observing collecting, holding and shipping practices of fishes and invertebrates here.

The points I would like to specifically address are Sections 4b1 and 4b2 of Bill 318:

Section 4b1: It is a well-established world-wide practice to "clean out" livestock to be shipped a few days ahead of its bagging and transport. This practice greatly increases the preservation of health of aquatic livestock that otherwise is greatly stressed by the addition of noxious metabolites (principally their primary excretory product ammonia). The number one cause of loss of captive aquatics through all history is actually this "metabolite build-up". As stated, all aquatic biota produce ammonia, continuously, with more being present with increased feeding and subsequent wastes in the bag. Feeding fishes and invertebrates so soon (a day prior) to their shipment results in much higher incidental mortality; hence, the universal technique of ceasing feeding for a few days ahead, especially with fishes like Tangs (Acanthuroids) that produce copious amounts of wastes due to their mostly algal and aufwuchs diet.

Section 4b2 Calls for shipping fishes in not less than one gallon of water. This practice is not only unwarranted; as again, the trade and science have determined that less water, using the space in the bag for more oxygen), is the best practice for assuring health in transit. More water not only introduces higher transport cost per fish, but gives the animals too much space to move about during transport. I urge you to read re the natural history of these fishes; at night time they "lay down" in nooks, crannies changing color a bit... to avoid predators. Similarly, livestock is purposely bagged, boxed in Styrofoam and cardboard boxes and taped shut for thermal insulation as well as to induce the "sleep phase" behavior. More water and room sloshing about will only damage this life in transit.

If you would like my input on these or other ornamental aquatics, fisheries issues, I will gladly consult as an independent fisheries biologist.
Sincerely,
Robert (Bob) Fenner

All of this is really helpful, and I'll definitely be exploring your website for further information about acclimation; it would be terrible to lose an entire tank to disease just because I didn't introduce a new fish correctly! I'm excited about starting my aquarium: I should be purchasing it this month!

Aquariums: Creative Design Elements for Home or Business... more PR      11/21/14

Dear editor,
<Okay. Howdy again Cass>
After visiting your website, I see that your readers are interested in learning more about creative aquariums design elements in the home and business place. I’d like to offer you an article which I think would be a good fit.
Whether it be in your home or at a doctor's office, there's nothing quite like watching colorful fish swim gently through a well-designed aquarium. A tank stocked with fish, plants and coral will not only occupy a client's waiting time, but it also provides a sense of peace and relaxation. The flow of the water along with the soothing interaction of the fish adds a peaceful design element to any space.
I would like to offer a guest blog by Greg Sowers, the owner of Fintastic, one of the largest custom-made aquarium retailers in the Southeast, highlighting the calming benefits of a beautiful aquarium in a home office or professional setting.
Do you have time for a call next week?

“State of the Aquatic Industry Town Hall”

Don’t miss the “State of the Aquatic Industry Town Hall” with Julian Sprung, Marshall Meyers, Sandy Moore, Dustin Dorton and Chris Buerner, moderated by Chris Clevers, Friday at 6:15.  This important Town Hall is open to all Aquatic Experience 2014 attendees and exhibitors.  The panel will discuss important issues impacting fish, corals and other aquatic creatures.  Retailers will learn how they can best communicate current threats to their customers to get them involved and ways they can help turn back the tide (no pun intended) in a coordinated fashion.  This discussion will include PIJAC’s efforts regarding the endangered species listing of Acropora Coral, specific species of fish and the activities of the PIJAC aquatic committee.  Bring your questions and learn what’s happened, what may be next and what all of it could mean to the aquatics industry.  

STEM resources for your site      10/21/14
<Mmm; no thanks. Not enough pertinence. B>
Hi there! I’m writing on behalf of Educator Labs, a volunteer-based startup that conducts free research for educators. We put retired teachers and librarians (like me!) back into meaningful engagement with other educators.
One of our missions is to share the unique and informative STEM resources we come across, as we believe teaching science, technology, engineering and math can never be overdone.
I noticed the science education resources on your site (on this page: http://www.wetwebmedia.com/alkmeas.htm) and thought you may be interested in seeing other similar resources. I have many (many!) I could share, but I’ve narrowed it down to six. Any interest in sharing these on your site?
