Seafood  lovers can play a crucial role in deciding the fate of the world's coral reefs  and their gorgeously-coloured fish, according toa leading marine scientist. Seafood consumption is a major driver of overfishing and destruction of reef  communities globally but there are some encouraging signs that consumers may be willing to eat more sustainably. These research outcomes will be presented  by Dr Mike Fabinyi of the ARC Centre of  Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at the Coral  Reefs in the 21st Century symposium in Townsville on Friday 11th October.
