Project Description

The colorful clownfish or anemonefish live at the bottom of shallow seas in sheltered reefs or shallow lagoons to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. The common anemonefish (Amphiprion ocellaris), also known as the ocellaris clownfish, is distinguished by the thin black lines around the white stripes. This infographic is intended to teach a lay audience about the clownfish including the life cycle and social dynamics. It also teaches the audience about its unique symbiotic mutualistic relationship with the sea anemone.
