New law in Thailand to protect Anemonefish

Anemonefish or Clownfish, will be protected under a new law in Thailand according to marine ecologists. They report that anemonefish are becoming harder to find in Thai waters recently. Destruction of the coral reefs and more people in Thailand keeping aquariums were listed as reasons for the problem.

''We hope that putting the clownfish on the protected list will at least scare poachers away from them. However, more work is needed to keep this precious creature in its wild habitat,'' said Pinsak Suraswadi, a marine expert of the Marine and Coastal Resources Department.
