Hello guys I’m writing a paper for my college on “
Can endangered areas and animals be saved by helping local people develop alternative economies like raising tropical fish or ecotourism?”. So a few points I made was about the cardinal fish and how they were saved by breeding. Anyways if you have any 2 cents you can throw in or articles you enjoyed that would be great.

Yeah uhhhh...it's a lot more nuanced than "the cardinalfish were saved by breeding," and it's still a point of contention today. Like, there WAS a call for the industry to rely more on breeding [Banggai] Cardinalfish. But we still get wild caught BCs in the hobby. But no, the cardinalfish was not "saved by breeding." There was no massive concerted effort by the Western aquaculture industry to "breed cardinalfish to save them". This is a good book to read thoroughly and reference from.

Give us the list of all the sources you're looking at now (any citation method works, just use one). If there's something obviously missing, I'll recommend a few sources.

Also uhh...you're asking on a forum. Please tell me you've already done a proper literature search at your college's library, via Google Scholar, and other searches before asking here. We're a great bunch, but we're also already biased towards one point of the argument.
