    Due to the detailed issues involved in accumulating and sustaining this list, such as constant additions of species, and revisions in nomenclature and classification of risk, it is a perpetual work in progress. Please refer to the most current revisions which will be made readily available to you. Together, letís bring a positive future for these fish, and reverse the growth of this list!
    A C.A.R.E.S. note: As responsible aquarists it is essential that you familiarize yourself with foreign and US wildlife laws. The C.A.R.E.S. Preservation Program recognizes only those fishes that are within the bounds of all laws, both foreign and domestic. Species that are not available to hobbyists for regulatory reasons are not included on this list. Working together, C.A.R.E.S. thanks you!
