Transcript of Clownfish and Sea Anemone Mutualism relationship

By: Makayla Ford Clown fish and Sea Anemone Mutualism Relationship The clown fish and sea anemone have a symbiotic relationship called mutualism. Mutualism- a relationship between two species of organisms in which both benefit. The clown fish's scientific name is Amphiprion Percula, while the Sea Anemone's is Actiniaria. Where they Live The clownfish and sea anemone live in the warmer waters of the Pacific and Indian Oceans. They can also be found in northwest Austrailia, Southeast Asia, Japan, and the Indo - Malaysian region. Names Symbiosis -the living together of two dissimilar organisms, as in mutualism, commensalism, amensalism, or parasitism. Commensalism - a type of relationship between two species of a plant, animal, fungus, etc., in which one lives with, on, or in another without damage to either. Parasitism - a relation between organisms in which one lives as a parasite on another. After the anemone has eaten its meal, the clownfish feeds on the remains of the kill. It also eats up the dead tentacles of the sea anemone and thereby, keeps the environment around the polyp clean. It also helps its host in getting its prey. The clownfish attracts other fish with its bright colors into the tentacles of the anemone, that the polyp kills with its poison and then devours. The feces of the clownfish also provides fertilizer to the sea anemone.
