About This Project

The response of Yellow Tang to the projected 4°C rise in Indo-pacific sea surface temperatures remains unknown. These fish play an important role in maintaining coral reef ecosystem health, just as they represent an economically important fish to the aquarium industry. The more we can learn about them now, such as thermal maxima and corresponding metabolic rates, the more prepared we will be to help mitigate the effects of warming ocean temperatures on this delicate species.
