Nations forging plan to protect Coral Triangle

WWF warns tuna fleets might venture there after depleting Mediterranean

The Philippines has proposed adding a premium to the price of fish from the Coral Triangle, as six Asian countries discussed Thursday how to protect one of the world's richest marine areas from pollution.

The countries that bound the Coral Triangle — Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and East Timor — are meeting in Manila to prepare a draft plan of action to safeguard the 2.2 million-square-mile ocean expanse with 75 percent of all known coral species and more than 3,000 fish species. It will be submitted to heads of state at the World Oceans Conference in Indonesia next year.
