We Zamami villager has a duty to construct this splendid sea in the next generation. Animal that coral grows up in the shallow sea. When coral dies, fish lose corner, too. We get rid of enemy of coral almost every day in association of Zamami diving and protect beautiful coral reef.

Acanthaster covered to splinter from head to foot eats up coral. It is at all dangerous work that splinter has strong poison and drags from between coral, and fry in ship. We injected acetic acid into acanthaster, and method to immobilize came to be taken recently. In addition, shiroreishigaidamashi (photograph) is conch cute visually, but eats up coral. It is work to need concentration and perseverance to pick out with tweezers from the backside of coral.

We stick stock on bedrock which we polished in underwater bond in wire brush. We want to grow rapidly, and forest of coral to become.
