  •  In the Philippine Sea... (4+ / 0-)

    There is still a pretty big problem with cyanide and dynamite fishing. There are now laws, but they are often ignored.

    Also, a woman told me of a tropical plant that people crush to make a poison that kills fish, and, as a consequence, the coral that hosts them.

    I'm not sure about Bali, but this still goes on all around the islands of the Equatorial Pacific and Palau.

    As a footnote:  The Philippine Sea has the greatest diversity of aquatic life in the world.
