Trang is planning to lay the basis of more than 1,700 little artificial coral reefs in the Andaman Sea in March at a cost of 10 million baht. 

However, over-fishing was putting huge pressure on the natural reef system, he said. Because of this, the Trang provincial administration is planning to create artificial coral reefs to boost marine life populations.
