After the release of the movie “Finding Nemo,” clown fish populations on coral reefs have been declining, presumably due to the popularity of having a fish that looks like the one from the movie in household aquariums. Scientists with the University of Queensland and Flinders University are worried that similar impacts could be felt on blue tang fishes with the upcoming release of “Finding Dory.”
