With a black body and two distinct white stripes, Taiwan’s native clown fish (also known as Clark's anemonefish) is a famous denizen in the northeast of the country. Unfortunately, a combination of environmental destruction, pollution, and excessive capture has triggered a steep decline in their numbers. In response to this worrying decline in fish numbers, scuba diving enthusiast Fan Shu-ming (范書銘) decided to instigate a clown fish repopulation program. Using an abalone breeding pool as a halfway house, the immature clown fish and sea anemones were allowed to live in a symbiotic relationship, and on release, each sea anemone concealed an average of three to ten clown fish within.  

Now in its third year, the repopulation program has already successfully released three hundred clown fish and kept a close track of the fish’s paring status. Recently, foreign countries have been relentlessly pushing for the clown fish to be added to a list of protected species and Fan Shu-ming has used an Internet fundraising platform to raise money for this repopulation program. It is hoped that the program will raise people’s awareness of marine biodiversity.

東北角小丑魚復育計畫

黑色的身軀有著兩條明顯的白色條紋,這是台灣原生種小丑魚,又名「克式雙帶海葵魚」,是東北角著名的嬌客,但環境破壞,人為濫捕,讓小丑魚數量銳減,因此熱愛潛水的范書銘進而開始小丑魚復育計畫。將九孔養殖池作為小丑魚的中途之家,讓海葵與小丑魚以相互共生的方式而活,而野放時平均每個海葵可供三至十條的小丑魚躲藏共生。

復育計畫已進行三年,且成功野放三百多隻小丑魚,並持續追蹤配對狀態,近期國外也不斷提倡將小丑魚列入保育物種行列,而范書銘則是透過網路募款平台宣導這項復育計畫,希望透過參與讓民眾了解海洋生物的多樣性。
