In Asia, sea cucumbers are a high-value delicacy and also used in traditional Chinese medicine. Globally, demand is dramatically outstripping supply, and the IUCN has added 17 species of sea cucumber to its “Red List” of threatened species.
Sea cucumbers are critical to sustaining the health and productivity of marine ecosystems. Aquaculture production and active fisheries management are the only viable means of meeting demand and safe-guarding the species.
