The coral reefs are of great interest to marine scientists and a recent study revealed that clownfish larvae dispersal methods are not the same for all fish, as previously believed. According to a Rutgers-led finding, how the larvae of colourful clownfish that live among the coral reefs in the Philippines are dispersed varies widely, depending on the year and season - which could help scientists improve conservation of species. It is worth noting that the colourful clownfish lay their eggs in the coral reefs and once they hatch, they become tiny, transparent larvae and float around in a sea of plankton.
