Reef Fish in the Wild
Reef fish live in expansive coral reef structures that tend to be located in shallow coastal tropical and subtropical waters. Some of the world’s most renowned coral reefs, and countless species of reef fish along with them, are found off the shores of Australia, the Philippines and the Florida Keys.
Threats to Reef Fish
It has been determined that habitat loss and destruction is the biggest collective threat to reef fish around the world. All reef fish need healthy, thriving coral and are impacted by the negative forces that harm the reefs they call home. Pollution, destructive fishing practices and climate change are just some of the threats that endanger coral reefs and reef fish.
