Scientists are eagerly waiting for more proof after well known scuba diver Shabir Bux sighted some species of fishes that could indicate the existence of coral reefs off Konark, about 40 km east of Puri in Orissa, India.
He has not seen any coral reef but has seen 50 species of fishes that are directly related to coral reef. If he is right and there is a coral reef that can be a good news because the coral reef near Andaman is being declared as slowly dying.
Though such claims have been made earlier but have not been proved, let’s keep our fingers crossed.
