Italian energy company Eni plans to start six deep-water oil wells in a 400km long exploration block known as Block ER236.
Conservationists believe this threatens a colony of some 30 coelacanths, found off the Sodwana coast in 2000.
The fish had been believed extinct until 1938, and are considered living fossils, having amazingly survived, unchanged, for hundreds of millions of years.
