That’s one of things I’m asking.  What are the legal issues?  What are the
environmental issues?  I’m not a coral expert, so maybe it’s no big deal
that these species are being sold.

It says on the website -" The Only Licensed UK and European distributer of
Coral from the Great Australian Barrier Reef"

Is that even legal?

This site that is selling coral looks disturbing:

What types of coral are pictured?  And how bad is it that it's being sold?
