But, despite its legality, aquarium fishing removes vital species from marine ecosystems. Conservationists argue that legal fish capture leaves coral reefs vulnerable to algae overgrowth, hurting other wildlife as a result. Robert Wintner, director of Snorkel Bob Foundation (which captured the video of Umberger's attack), told the AP that he's spent years lobbying state legislators to regulate or end the aquarium fish collecting trade, but to no avail. Now, he's turned to organizations like Sea Shepherd Conservation Society for help documenting the effects of the collection, in hopes it will be more productive. "Underwater is under the radar," Wintner said. "Our entire objective is to bring a little sunshine on this, bring these facts to surface."
