Quote from the article:

"I usually use a scissors because gorgonians are easy to cut through, but cutting pliers or those nifty "fragging" shears can be used as well. It might also be worth mentioning that some gorgonians are very intolerant of exposure and should be kept submerged. The ones described here are not so sensitive, but seafans can be sensitive to this condition as well as the gorgonian, Muriceopsis sp. (common in the trade) and a host of others."
