Clown Fish Research

Yachts For Science are looking for yachts located in the Great Barrier Reef, Fiji, Marshall Islands, Philippines, New Caledonia, Solomon Islands, Seychelles and Maldives to research clown fish. Scientifically, the clownfish-sea anemone symbiosis is now considered a model system to test a wide range of scientific hypotheses across the biological sciences, including areas such as evolutionary biology, behavioural ecology, climate change, reproduction, population connectivity, and conservation. However, key mysteries remain, most surprisingly, the evolution and function of clownfish colour patterns themselves are unknown.
