        Clownfish and Anemone | Big Pacific: Passionate

        Clownfish and anemones have a mutualistic partnership, meaning both species benefit from one another. Clownfish defend, clean, and even feed the anemone. In return, the anemone offers a safe home for the clownfish family who, with tactic, become immune to its venom. Clownfish have an unconventional social structure, because all clownfish are born males, and only the dominant individual becomes female. 

        This video about clownfish and anemone has three distinct parts. The first describes how clownfish adapt to living among anemone. The second part describes the ecosystem dynamics of the two sea creatures. The third piece identifies the human impact on clownfish.
