With coral reefs facing threats from global climate change and population growth, the global marine aquarium trade is becoming an increasingly contentious topic.
One way our team at USC is focused on improving the sustainability of marine aquarium fisheries is through captive culture of high demand species. Pictured are the first cultured Amphiprion Percula clownfish ('Nemo!') produced in Papua New Guinea, now three months old.
This success was achieved through partnership with PNG's National Fishery Authority.
This work is part of the project "Mariculture development in New Ireland, PNG" funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research.
