Perhaps if certain populations or species of clownfish were in danger of being lost, the marine hobby would have a different stance.

If Acropora palmata were kept by hobbyists, I'd wager that folks would be very protective of its lineage purity.

In my corner of the herp hobby, rosy boas (Lichanura orcutti and trivirgata, for the time being, anyway) are in the same situation -- many people are protective of locales being kept pure, because the taxonomy is in flux and mixing up captive populations will eliminate future keepers' knowledge of what (sub)species we have. Some folks who just wanna make money don't seem to care.
I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd.
