The Ministry of Fisheries will be having consultations this afternoon with the aquarium companies and exporters of live coral to clear the air on what type of live coral or rock is to be banned.

It has also stressed that it is not a complete ban on all types of coral.

Speaking to Fijivillage, Fisheries Officer Meli Raicebe says that the consultation process will finalize the restrictions to be implemented by the Ministry.

Raicebe says there was a misunderstanding with the aquarium companies when the announcement of the ban was done.

The Ministry of Fisheries had announced the ban on all harvesting, purchasing, sales and export of live coral and aquarium rock also known as live rock, coral rock or fossil coral.

The Ministry had stated that no export permits would be processed by the ministry.
