Note(s): Practically all of the over 3,000 species of marine fishesand invertebrates marketed in the aquarium tradeindustry are collected from coral reef ecosystems.Extensive and destructive collection of these animals candirectly deplete the target species that already underthreat from habitat loss or degradation and indirectlydamage the delicate coral reefecosystem. Over 18 species of marinetropical shrimps are collected for theaquarium trade (Fletcher et al. 1995).Many of these species are cleanershrimps that remove parasites off fish, therefore play a vital role in coralecology (Jonasson 1987, Debelius1984, 1985, Wilkerson 1994).Florida Atlantic University.
