Fish Lab: Fun Facts and Fascinating Findings

Our volunteer Mark follows his passion for marine biology down to the fish lab, where he gets to work with our Clownfish sustainable breeding project.
Learn about our Maldivian and Clark’s Clownfish as they hatch from a clutch of tiny eggs, through a larval stage before developing into miniature ‘Nemo’ juveniles.
