Catching clownfish

Diving is well underway here in the Philippines - members of the Pinsky lab are back for another season studying metapopulation dynamics of reef fish, focusing on the yellowtail clownfish (Amphiprion clarkii). We tag and fin-clip fish for genetic and mark-recapture studies. We've started with the northern sites in our study area in the Albuera municipality and have caught (and released) almost 200 clownfish so far.
