The acanthaster, a coral-eating seafish

They are huge, and they are one of the greatest threats to corals. In New Caledonia, Brut nature followed scientists who intervene in areas infested with crown-of-thorns starfish.

    If there's such a problem why are they only being passive? Why not cull the starfish?

    People should stop eating or just collecting the Giant Triton (the only natural predator of the crown of thorns) and the equilibrium would be there.

    The predator of crown of thorns is being harvested by humans. The giant snail is now near to extinction.

    Its seems to have caused some damages for the coral reef.. then it is the best solution to inject it with lemon juice or vinegar.. that way it is decomposes in the water, the other micro sea organisms can feed on it.. Merci beaucoup! :-)

    Humans should not interfere with nature. Just leave it alone.
