Department of Marine and Coastal Resources Phuket Technical Specialist-Ratree Suksuwan-unveiled the research of feeding and training Ocellaris clownfish to live with sea anemone before releasing them in Andaman Sea.

In mid August, the research institute released trained clownfish and found that the survive rate is quite high. That means the extinction rate will be decreased.

Ocellaris clownfish only can find from South East Asia to North West of Australia area and in South of Japan.

In Thailand, Ocellaris clownfish can be found in Andaman Sea and Koh Losin in the Gulf of Thailand. They mainly live with 3 types of sea anemone; Heteractis Magnifica, Stichodactyla Gigantea, and Stichodactyla Mertensii.
