Tropical marine ornamentals comprise an increasingly important fishery worldwide. Although the potential for overexploitation of marine ornamentals is great, few studies have addressed the population-level impacts of ornamental exploitation and few ornamental fisheries are managed. Analysis of catch records obtained from collectors over a four-month period in the vicinity of Cebu, Philippines, showed that anemonefish and anemones comprised close to 60% of the total catch.

Long-term increases in abundance of anemonefish and their host sea anemones in an Australian marine protected area
TLDR
Long-term trends in anemone and anemOnefish abundance at four sites within a ‘no-take’ zone at North Solitary Island, Australia, is examined by comparing data from 2008 to surveys done in 1994 and 1995, with an overall increase in abundance.
Rapid assessment of anemone and anemonefish populations at theKeppel Islands [electronic resource]: a report to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority
TLDR
It was concluded that both groups of organisms are currently rare at the Keppel Islands, especially when compared with other locations.
Trying to find Nemo: low abundance of sea anemones and anemonefishes on central and southern mid-shelf reefs in the Great Barrier Reef
TLDR
It is essential that collection is carefully regulated to prevent localised extinctions and ensure that reproductive success is not adversely impacted on the Great Barrier Reef.
Recovery potential of mutualistic anemone and anemonefish populations
Losing ‘Nemo’: bleaching and collection appear to reduce inshore populations of anemonefishes
TLDR
The highest densities of fishes were found on reefs closed to fishing and aquarium collecting in both the Keppel Islands and Far North Queensland, which suggests that collecting is compounding the effects of bleaching.
Low density populations of anemonefish with low replenishment rates on a reef edge with anthropogenic impacts
TLDR
Demographic patterns differed among species, and requirements for conservation will therefore be different among species on the reef edges of Okinawa-jima Island under anthropogenic impact.
The role of marine reserves in the replenishment of a locally impacted population of anemonefish on the Great Barrier Reef
The development of parentage analysis to track the dispersal of juvenile offspring has given us unprecedented insight into the population dynamics of coral reef fishes. These tools now have the
Abundance and diversity of anemonefishes and their host sea anemones at two mesophotic sites on the Great Barrier Reef, Australia
TLDR
The hypothesis that mesophotic reefs have many species common to shallow-water coral reefs and that many taxa may occur at depths greater than currently recognised is supported.
Raiding the Coral Nurseries
TLDR
A commercial coral fishery based on uncommon but highly sought-after species may not be ecologically sustainable or economically viable in the Keppels because of the impact of the harvest on local coral communities.
AN OVERVIEW OF MARINE ORNAMENTAL FISH BREEDING AS A POTENTIAL SUPPORT TO THE AQUARIUM TRADE AND TO THE CONSERVATION OF NATURAL FISH POPULATIONS
TLDR
An overview of the ornamental trade regarding the most important species involved and their situation and the harvesting effects on the ecosystem is presented and updated information on breeding protocols for some high-value marine species is discussed.

In many parts of the world, marine ornamentals, fishes and invertebrates collected and sold in the aquarium trade, comprise an increasingly important fishery. Few management strategies have been

TLDR
Conservation measures include limiting collecting effort, establishment of species-based or overall quotas, restrictions on rare and/or endemic species, temporary closures and establishment of fisherybreak reserves.
Environmental Implications of Aquarium-fish Collection in the Maldives, with Proposals for Regulation
Export of aquarium-fish from the Maldives began in 1980 and in 1989 almost 54,000 marine fishes, worth approximately US$ 130,000, were exported. The collection of aquarium species is confined to a
Coexistence of nine anemonefish species: differential host and habitat utilization, size and recruitment
TLDR
The spatial patterns of recruitment among zones strongly determined the distribution and abundance patterns of the benthic populations, and they were not the result of post-recruitment mortality or movement.
Growth of the anemonefish Amphiprion clarkii in temperate waters, with special reference to the influence of settling time on the growth of 0-year olds
TLDR
The results suggest that the onset of breeding by an individual is not only determined by his age, but also by his ranking in the dominance hierarchy, as indicated by the difference in size among 0-year olds in December.

A network of nine Fish Replenishment Areas (FRA) reserves was demarcated in West Hawai’i in 2000 in response to declines of reef fishes taken by aquarium collectors. In 1999, we established 23 study

TLDR
Investigating the relationship between characteristics of the reef environment and variations in the distribution and abundance of the anemonefishes Amphiprion akindynos and A. latezonatus suggests that while sea-anemone cover does, to an extent, regulate the local ecology of anem onefishes, other factors are also likely to interact to limit their densities.
Effects of Aquarium Collectors on Coral Reef Fishes in Kona, Hawaii
TLDR
The results suggest that aquarium collectors have a significant effect on the abundance of targeted aquarium fishes, and better knowledge of the intensity and location of collecting activities is required to make a rigorous assessment of the effects of collecting on nearshore fish populations.
Why do anemonefishes inhabit only some host actinians?
  • D. Fautin
  • Environmental Science, Biology
    Environmental Biology of Fishes
  • 2004
TLDR
Entacmaea, the most abundant and widespread host actinian at Lizard Island and throughout the range of the association, is also arguably the most attractive to anemonefishes, and I believe its vulnerability to predation was a factor in its evolving whatever makes it desirable to fishes.
