Manta Ray Trade 

The trade in manta ray products, fueled by demand from Asian markets for health tonics, is lucrative - two pounds of manta gill plates can fetch $250-$500 in China. But there's a much less invasive way: tourism. Manta ray tourism alone attracts $140 million dollars every year around the world. Indonesia is one of the world's top destinations for manta ray tourism.
