Keeping a viable population of any species going long term is generally beyond the means of hobbyists. There is too much genetic drift. The end result is a fish that could not survive in the wild.

The best contribution we can make is to not buy fish that we know are wild caught in a manner that is unstainable, or damages the environment. Knowing which fish these are isnt always easy, so I err on the side of caution.

Really the most important thing is to support organizations or governments that do something to protect the habitat.
