I am not advising poaching here, but it looks like there is a thriving reef pretty close to the city. I am sure there is no harm if a few responsible aquarists can collect a few samples to try and get them to grow in captivity. The hobby definitely needs more captive cultivation of corals.
Look at that Zoa colony!
I dont understand why isn't there more push for cultivation of coral in India. Its sure to bring lots of revenue, definitely has export potential, and can be done cheaply given our tropical conditions and labor costs. There is no denying the fact that illegally Indian reefs are being exploited tremendously for the hobby. I am actually surprised this colony exists so close to a metropolis like Mumbai.
