I've been looking over reefs of the Gulf of Mexico, but in the general vicinity of Texas. There is really only the Flower Garden Banks and although you can dive and visit I noticed they regulate so nothing can be taken(which makes perfect sense to conserve). Are the other reefs of the US equally protected? those along the Keys/Hawaii? And how is it people study these reefs without taking or do they allow license for scientists/students?
