Keeping seahorses and pipefishes in aquaria

Project Seahorse recognizes that a sustainable trade in syngnathids for the public aquarium market has a role to play in the conservation of seahorses and pipefishes (syngnathids). All consumers of syngnathids need to be mindful of the considerable pressures being placed on wild populations through habitat change, incidental capture in non-selective fishing gear, and direct …

Interspecific hybridisation of seahorses and pipefishes

Project Seahorse cautions against mating across different species (hybridization) of seahorses and pipefishes (syngnathids). Trade in hybrid offspring of such matings may compromise captive breeding programmes and release of hybrids poses high risks to wild populations. In order to reduce the potential for hybridization we recommend that anyone currently holding or intending to hold syngnathids: …

Exploitation and trade of Australian seahorses, pipehorses, sea dragons and pipefishes (Family Syngnathidae)

Seahorses and their syngnathid relatives have provided a focus for efforts to ensure sustainable use of marine resources, with new international trade controls (CITES Appendix II) implemented in May 2004. We demonstrate how a study of international trade can be used to assess relative levels of threat and set domestic research and conservation priorities. Australia …
