EU-reported imports of live coral of Euphyllia glabrescens (excluding trade reported in kg) from the two main sources ('W' and 'F'), all purposes, 2002-2011.

EU-reported imports in 2011 principally comprised wild-sourced and source ‘F’ live corals (15 420 and 10 112 corals, respectively), which were primarily imported for commercial purposes. The majority of the live, wild-sourced imports were imported directly from Australia while the principal exporter of live, source ‘F’ corals was Indonesia. Imports of live corals have increased every year since 2002; between 2010 and 2011, imports of wild-sourced live corals more than doubled. A positive opinion was formed for specimens from Australia on 28/05/2013. A pre-existing negative opinion for specimens from Indonesia was replaced with a positive opinion on 15/05/2002, and reconfirmed at SRG 41 on 14/09/2007.
