CITES Update

CITES Update
The new CITES (The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) quotas from Indonesia started being issued about 10 days ago. We currently have Jakarta coral shipments scheduled for Tuesday the 10th, Thursday the 12th and Sunday the 15th. The reported hang up over the past few weeks was with the CITES permits being issued from the point of collection to the point of export. In addition to our wild coral shipments, we have a Bali aquacultured shipment scheduled for arrival Sunday the 15th.
