TABLE S1. The regions and countries engaged in local and international trade of live and dried seahorses, as indicated with an ‘x’. Data were collected between 1996 and 2008 from three data sets: the first surveys (1996), second surveys (1998–2001) and CITES (2004–2008). Data were obtained from on-site surveys and interviews, correspondence with researchers, official government customs and trade records or CITES records (UNEP-WCMC, 2010). CITES data were based on both import (consumer country) and export (source) records. Countries that only re-export seahorses are not included.

TABLE S2. Reported legislation that pertains to live or dried syngnathid extraction and trade. Species names are indexed in the table and given in the footnotes. The information under Legislation is the summary of often complicated statutes; see references for full wording. Year refers to the most recent date the information was confirmed.
