    Welcome to MASA Ridwan. :)
    Yes there are a few members including me who dive our local waters and catch specimens. You can obtain you permit from the post office.

    Does anyone dive around Wernerbeach & Winkel? The last time I did a bit of snorkeling just to the right of Warners, ther was a reef possibly 50m out. It don't know if it even exists anymore, that was a good 12-14 years ago.

    A very WARM WELCOME to MASA, Ml. Ridwan.

    And NO - Ridwan. It is ILLEGAL to sell locally caught fish or invertebrates/soft-corals.

    The idea is to trap the fish and let it come to you rather than chase it all over the place. Practice makes perfect :)
    As Jacques pointed out, buying, selling, swapping of local fish is illegal.

    Not at all. Any fish caught should be placed in quarantine for at least two weeks before adding to your main tank.
