Maw-numental Challenges Ahead For Sea Cucumbers and Fish Maw?

Maw-numental Challenges Ahead For Sea Cucumbers and Fish Maw?

Sea Cucumbers and Fish Maw might not strike you as facing threats nor do they seem like the poster children for marine conservation. But a new report by the Wildlife Trade Monitoring Network TRAFFIC, has outlined how the booming online trade of both Sea Cucumbers and Fish Maw in Malaysia and Singapore, coupled with high levels of international trafficking, could endanger wild populations. How is this important from an ecological point of view, and what could happen if regulators don't step up scrutiny and control of this trade? We discuss this and more with Kanitha Krishnasamy, the Director for Southeast Asia at TRAFFIC.
