MMO 2014 is online and indeed does not contain any data. No graphs, no tables. Just conjecture and moaning about the one scientific study that has been done. 


Also the report states that it does not necessarily reflect the views of the MMO. No author names. No data. Pseudoscience.

If they dislike the light, why are they so shallow. 


The MMO report is not peer reviewed and, while I have not seen it, probably does not contain any data, merely opinion. That an organisation like the MMO is making decisions not based on proper science is alarming and embarrassing for us Brits.


There is one proper scientific study on seahorse photography that is based on scientific data and has been through the peer-review process and therefore, for now, should be the one that all decisions should be based on. Here is an interview with the author:



My horoscope did say that it was a bad month for photographing seahorses (not that I had plans to). I hope the MMO don't read that or it will be in their next report.
