And now, the seashell pirates of India....

Reported here:
One man, a website, three states, over a thousand employees and businesses across the world — every bit of the plan to denude the coasts of peninsular India of its treasures was in place.

All these are banned and endangered sea animals under the Wildlife Protection Act 1972.
