This is segment two in a multi-part series on the marine aquarium trade and marine aquarium trade data. I’m Ret Talbot reporting from the Philippines as a special report to Reefs.com. In this segment, we’ll look at why we need data. We’ll talk about illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fisheries, shifting baselines and why a data-centric approach to is good for fisheries and the trade in fisheries products. Thanks for watching, and if you have questions or comments feel free to comment below or email me directly at Ret@RetTalbot.com. Once I return to the States, I’ll be looking to answer any questions and continue the dialog with you on why data matter.
