From the blog

"A few fishers I met even tried to culture seahorses because their children love them."

Effective marine conservation must be complemented by sound policy. As the IUCN Red List Authority on seahorses and their relatives, Project Seahorse works with governments, authorities and international organizations to develop successful conservation policies.

Successful marine conservation depends on knowledge about the habitat needs of threatened species. Project Seahorse is undertaking a long-term study on the recovery of degraded coral reef within marine protected areas.

Seahorses are valuable global commodities that are traded around the world for use in traditional Chinese medicine, aquaria, and for curiosities. Project Seahorse works to promote the sustainable consumption of seahorses.

Project Seahorse promotes fishing practices that consider impacts on marine animals and ecosystems as well as human coastal communities. Finding a balance requires biological and socioeconomic knowledge and integration of research findings with marine management.
