Finding Nemo/Fish Interest

Saw this on National TV in Canada. Finding Nemo has caused an interest in Children and sales of Clown Fish have increased.

I think that we all expected as much. As well as expecting the death rate of captive clown fish to rise astronomically as more and more people setup SW tanks without researching and learning what is needed to keep a marine aquarium.

An SPCA spokesperson said something along those same lines in the show. Hopefully. this will encourage atleast a few to research and do things properly.

Yes that article was written and released on the website very close to the release of the movie. All we can do is try to educate those who are interested.

There has been a significant amount of "finding nemo" talk all over the web and most of it is not overly postive.

Yes, I think everyone everywhere is freaking out just a little much.

I disagree.
It takes the "freaking out" people to raise public awareness.

Yes, it truly does. BUT I dont think a movie is going to RUIN the hobby and kill off the reefs and not let anyone own any marine animals as some crazy people are saying.

or we can all be lax and lazy about it. Do an ostrich routine and when it is all
depleted, scratch our heads and wonder why. The lack of knowledge surrounding the depletion of the reefs quite amazes me. The endangered species are too numerous to ignore. Yeah, you can raise clownfish in captivity, but that is not the point. What about all the species you cant?

I wonder what the popularity of coral calcium is going to do.

I am not saying to do a chicken dance while they go away, but I am saying that a disney movie and its aftermath is not going to make them go away faster. I dont want to come off the wrong way, but everyone thinks that a few people buying a clownfish, and it dying, is gonna make PETA and the other tree huggers cause the US government to ban all the LFS's from selling anything live. I know they wont do this, escpeccialy when the economy is as bad as it is. I feel that this movie can do a great deal of good for this hobby, bringing in people who are really interested in bringing a peice of the ocean into our home.
