On August 27, 2013 DMWR staffs removed 350 crown of thorns from the reef at Fagasa. Alama Tua was the captian along with deck hand Krishna Tuifaiga and Sione Lam Yuen Jr., Joshua Tuaumu was the snorkeler, Tafito Aitaoto, Afa Uikirifi, Peter Taliva'a and Sean Felise were divers. Representatives from the National Park were also there to assist with the effort. The boys from the national park use a different method, rather than removing crown of thorns out of the water they injected crown of thorns with Sodium Bisulphate.
