I'm hoping someone can help me out. I'm a U.S. reporter with the Miami New Times. I'm working on an investigative piece about several shipping containers that have been seized because they were filled with coral taken from the Solomon Islands.

I came across this article you guys published "Fisheries Ministry Investigates Confiscated Corals" http://www.solomontimes.com/news.aspx?nwID=6366

I'm wondering if you have any contacts or know if this is investigation is ongoing? I'd like to try to speak with an authority figure from the Fisheries Ministry, but I'm not sure who. Do you have any contacts or emails that I should know of? Any information you can provide will be much appreciated.
