pink anemonefish

Home on the Reef

A pink anemonefish (Amphiprion perideraion) looks out from the tentacles of its home, a big anemone in Kimbe Bay, Papua New Guinea, where WHOI fish ecologist Simon Thorrold has a long-term research project to study connections among populations of reef fish. Thorrold tracks the migrations and dispersal of fish, ranging from this small reef-dweller to whale sharks, the largest fish in the sea. He also heads the WHOI Ocean Life Institute, which supports research in areas of marine biodiversity, ocean megafauna, and coral reefs.
