Collecting sites and regulations in Japan

March 10, 1999
From: Cynthia Trowbridge

Dear Bill,

Thank you very much for creating this slug site. Keep up your good work!

I was wondering if anyone could offer me suggestions on collection localities in Japan? I am attending a seaweed (slug food!!!)conference in Hong Kong and then flying back to Oregon via Japan. I am interested in collecting Placida dendritica from the Inland Sea area of Japan. Would anyone be able to give me suggestions of specific localities to visit and to describe the current regulations for collecting opisthobranchs and exporting perserved specimens (for DNA analysis)? I would appreciate any assistance (I am leaving mid June). Thanks in advance for your assistance!

Cordially, Cynthia

Dear Cynthia,
Hopefully someone will be able to help you with information. I would be very grateful if you could give some background information on your research work - with pictures if possible - and a paragraph for the Participants Page.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
