Re: species of concern
I heard back from Tom (my email either never made it or got buried) and the
situation is this:
a provisional list is due out sometime this spring, but that's mostly for
the purposes of goading people into responding by saying "Gee, Tom, we've
got millions of species X. It's not in danger of being lost" since the
response rate was pretty much too low to have too much confidence in it's
being 100% correct right now.
His advice was to keep an eye out and anytime you see a species listed that
you haven't seen in the FEL or elsewhere in the last six months, that's
probably one of the species of concern. The breeder offering the fish in
question can then give pointers on the difficulty of raising/breeding the
fish. For now this seems like a workable strategy.
Perhaps one extra touch might be for the breeders themselves to point out
which species they think are fairly rare, so that others might benefit from
their knowledge of the status of that particular species.
