Caption: Seashell trade. Rows of seashells and coral on sale at a market in Africa. The sale of seashells and coral to tourists has been targeted by the Ministry for the Environment in Djibouti. While the trade can bring in a profitable income for local merchants, it is damaging the marine ecosystem of the Indian ocean that surrounds the country's coastline. This could have devestating long-term effects on the country's economy which relies heavily on tourism.
