I know. I'm all for protecting wildlife, but this ban would really hurt us aquarists.

I'm a bit confused. Is the ban going to prohibit collection during those months or sales in retail stores. The concept of "no-take" months makes it sound collection oriented, but the article starts out saying it will be a "prohibition on sale of aquatic life for aquarium purposes throughout Hawaii. " Even if those sales are of tank-raised animals??? That doesn't make sense.

And if it's a prohibition on collection, wouldn't that just put more pressure on collectors to collect as many as they can when they can, making the dent in the wild population more significant at one time? That could make it nearly impossible to keep sustainable populations.

I don't like this particular idea, but at least if gets the subject talked about at a state level...

The article is not clear. Either way, it's not good.

when a ban is put in place, most of the time there will be a limit on catch per day when the season does open up. sometimes it's numbers, sometimes it's size, and sometimes both. it's pretty common, we'll see what they decide on.

it sounds like they would be putting a ban on something just for the political purpose. Doens't sound like there's a real need for a ban..
