    Cyanide fishing is an illegal practice in the collection of reef fish for the aquarium trade. Sodium cyanide is sprayed on fish near a coral reef, forcing them to retreat inside the coral. The divers then break off the section of coral, collecting it an the creatures inside. The cyanide is harmful to the coral and many non-target species.
