SynopsisAt Sesoko Island, stocks of anemonefishes were observed for 2 years in a 350 m × 150 m area where host sea anemones were sparse. About 40% of the pairs separated, mostly due to typhoon attacks or displacement. Widowed mates remained and acquired new mates on the same sea anemone, except for one case. New mates were immigrant adults inAmphiprion clarkii and A.frenatus, but resident juveniles inA. perideraion. A. clarkii andA. frenatus moved between sea anemones and sometimes displaced… Expand
