According to that list, apart from Sea Fans and Sea Pens, it would appear that, as long as you have the relevant permit, you may collect any soft corals from our waters, but not SPS or LPS as these are (in my opinion) both in the Hard Coral (Scleractinia) category. It also seems like you may collect invertebrates as well, excluding clams.Regulations specific to marine aquarium fishing
