Tens of thousands of the clown fish Nemo home in Xiamen!
The past few days. “Finding Nemo 2” aggressively, and 13 years ago “Finding Nemo 1” popular in the global star clown fish Nemo and his father Marin brought to the front of everyone. Popular clown fish color with dazzling series of films, let it become a hot favourite fish game player.
However, trapping the clown fish can be said to be a ecological destruction, because clown fish like coral reefs in the installation, humans often will be highly qinghuajia scattered on the coral reef, to let the clown fish out of their holes facilitate capture. How to avoid such a situation, but also to make the clown fish have the opportunity to become a pet at home? Three years ago, funded by the research center of Southern Ocean in Xiamen, Xiamen University of ocean and earth science, Professor Liu and his research team) and Xiamen City Ocean and fishery of the Xiamen Haiyi Biological Technology Co., Ltd. jointly, to carry out the “marine ornamental fish and shrimp breeding technology mode of construction and scale production” project. At present, the project will be the examination and acceptance, Xiamen has thus become after Guangzhou, Sanya, the three clown fish scale of artificial propagation and seed production base, and cultivate new strains of clown fish.
Below, we will listen to the story about its “family history”, and how it came from tropical to subtropical Xiamen “settled”.
Live in Xiamen
Three years to come to Xiamen experts carefully cultivated
Enter the Chinese market of marine ornamental fish, mostly from Southeast asia.
We love the clown fish and coral reefs in the installation, it is doomed to tragedy when we arrested. Timid, we in the crevice of the coral reef safe head and human to entice us out of the hole, actually will be highly qinghuajia scattered on the coral reef! Coral is doomed. We don’t want to this die of asphyxia feeling from the gills of radiation to the whole body, we strive to swim out of hiding places, eager to break the siege to find a seat clean water for air. At this time, a net to capture, then we wander, go all around the world. Enter the ornamental fish market, we are favored; but to buy our master found, we almost always listless appearance and soon died. This is potassium cyanide poisoning and tiring “sequela”.
My head is strong, all the way over, three years ago, was taken away from the buyers in Xiamen. I heard they are college of marine and earth of Xiamen University and Xiamen City Ocean and Fishery Research Institute of the experts, devoted to the study of how to make the clown fish live in Xiamen and thrive, the cruel means of wild caught clown fish disappeared, I feel very honored. And I together “selected” the clown fish speak there are thousands of, like me looking logo, bright colors, strong body, to eventually become broodstock, two pro with fish into a “model husband and wife”, began to breed.
We have a high mortality rate of wild caught, and we have been carefully cultivated by experts, and our mortality rate has been reduced by at least half. Adequate palatability of food, suitable temperature and water quality, in Xiamen city life for each model couple a month can be output 500 to 800 eggs!
Now, we have settled in Xiamen in three at the base, where I base is Xiamen ocean and fishery research institute. As far as I know, the three bases in Xiamen massage can have at least several thousand of the clown fish bred by the end of the month!
Love and get married
Pay attention to love at first sight to comply with a husband and a wife
Artificial breeding clown fish, was recognized as the industry’s problems. Experts always have a way, let us find a suitable partner.
We clown fish, for humans is a very “magical” fish. We were born, the concept of gender is fuzzy. After about a year, we continued to development, the emergence of “sexuality” — this time, we have become the “young man”.
Everyone is a man, how is this done? Experts began to organize our blind date, introduced a female friend to us. These female friends are the female clown fish in the process of nurturing the experts. Put a pot of warm water cylinder, this is our “bridal chamber” in the future, spawning the “delivery room” is also here. We also pay attention to love at first sight, meet a few hours in if there is a fight, it shows that our sub character; if we affectionately rub, “see eye to eye”. This is me, I met the head than the other half”.
In the natural environment, we abide by the “one husband and one wife” system, with the children to live. Accidents often, if the mother died, the father will begin to degeneration, and the child is the biggest one, then become a “father””.
But you know? The clown fish parents with children live, and these children are not own — because we from fertilized eggs to hatch out, with the current drift, for their own survival in the sea; first sexual development, we will find the coral reefs surrounding the “settled”, usually join a new family, and become one of its children. Of course, we are waiting for the opportunity, once the “parents” one of the accidents, there is the opportunity to “host”; or we grow large enough, can be separated from the family, looking for their partner.
