Nemo can travel great distances to connect populations: Baby clownfish travel hundreds of kilometers across open ocean

17 septiembre 2014

Clownfish spend their entire lives nestling in the protective tentacles of host anemones, but new research shows that as babies they sometimes travel hundreds of kilometres across the open ocean. Although the process of long-distance dispersal by reef fish has been predicted, this is the first time that the high level exchange of offspring between distant populations has been observed.
