Is it illegal to purchase wild caught seahorse in the U.K.?

The IUCN is The International Union for the Conservation of Nature, they are one of many bodies that have been set up to legislate on the trade and protection of animals.

Every country has its own set of laws regarding their wildlife and it does vary from country to country. In the United Kingdom we are in a situation where sea horses are just being considered for protection under the Wildlife and Countryside for full protection but unfortunately at the moment they are not protected unless they are taken from Eel Grass beds and then they are under the protection that Eel Grass beds are given.
