HISTORY & FACTS:Pavona cactus, the cactus coral, potato chip coral or leaf coral, is a species of colonial stony coral in the family Agariciidae. This coral is found in shallow waters on reefs and in lagoons in tropical parts of the Indo Pacific region.
There is a current shift to Aquaculture and Sustainability instead of wild harvesting. Particularly in Indonesia, the world’s largest supplier of stony corals and home to more coral reef areas than any other nation, many producers have “learned that if you collect a really beautiful, interesting coral, if you export that, you get to export it one time,” “If you keep it and farm it, you get to export it forever.”
