I've recently been reading up on Florida's rule and regulations concerning recreational harvesting of marine species. It seems that there are is a wide variety of species permitted by a simple fishing license. I am scuba certified and the idea of personally collecting specimens for my aquarium is very intriguing.

I know captive breed and propagated corals have many benefits over their wild counterparts but everything came from the wild at one point. I also understand, as much as I can, the consequences and responsibilities of removing living organisms from the ocean. So please if you don't have any constructive ideas- keep them to yourself.

The Question-
Does anyone have information on how I should begin this process- where is acceptable to collect, boat captains that are open to this, tips, tricks, experiences, books, links ect.

Thanks
