NOISY NEMO

May 2007

Those clownfish make a huge racket to deter predators and competitors, and to attract a mate. This article in Science shows how they do it. (You or your  institution will need a subscription to get past the abstract.)

You can watch a video of the fish making the noise here (sadly no sound!), and watch an animated computer model here.
