IMPORTANT!! Coral Info

To Whom it May Concern:
RE: Coral and Anemones Export Prohibition:

  • There has been an unfortunate instruction from Indonesian Fishery Ministry stating that starting from May 4th 2018 the quarantine authority in Indonesia is temporarily until unforseeable time line not allowed to issue health certificate for all corals (wild and aquacultured) and anemones.
  • Both Ministry of Forestry & Nature Conservation and Ministry of Fisheries are jointly regulating the live corals trade in Indonesia. Ministry of Forestry & Nature Conservation as the officially recognized Management Authority for CITES for Coral and all national regulations concerning local collection, transport and exportation of live corals, while Ministry of Fishery is the issuing body for Health Certificate required to some but not all importing countries and also the said Health Certificate serves as requirement to load the coral commodity to the carrying plane cargo.
  • There has been a missing link in the internal synchronization between Ministry of Forestry and Nature Conservation and Ministry of Fisheries. We are working on re synchronization right now.
  • We are working as hard as we can through the Indonesian Coral Shell and Ornamental Fish Association (AKKII) with partnership with the stakeholders of corals management in Indonesia to resolve this legal case.
  • We plea to all of our customers and stakeholders around the world to be calm and supportive to our cause for the continuing sustainable harvest and export of live ornamental corals in Indonesia.
