This 40th issue of the SPC Beche-de-mer Information Bulletin includes 15 original articles
and scientific observations from a wide variety of regions around the world.
We begin with an article by Di Simone et al. (p. 3–4), discussing the recent addition of
three Holothuriidae species (teatfish: Holothuria fuscogilva, H. nobilis and H. whitmaei) to
CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) Appendix 2. Di Simone
and her colleagues note that this first “listing” for holothurians will probably be closely
monitored to determine whether CITES is the right instrument for their conservation.
