Description:

Baby pink branching coral unmistakable! This very slow growing coldwater coral is common around the shores of cornwall but is in fact a protected species due to the fact that it is very rare elsewhere. Unfortunatly they are at great risk from trawl fisheries as they are knocked over and will only regrow at a rate of 1-2cm per year
