Palette Surgeonfish - Conservation Creature Plush


Palette Surgeonfish (Paracanthurus hepatic), also known as Blue Tang, are the subject of the popular animated films Finding Dory and Finding Nemo. They are bright blue, reef­-dwelling hervbivorous fish. They are found in tropical west Pacific waters, including REEF’s CIP and SOP regions.

REEF Conservation Creatures are iconic marine species from REEF’s Volunteer Fish Survey Project regions. These marine creatures highlight the diversity of ocean ecosystems and encourage understanding and respect for marine life. We hope they inspire you to join REEF and learn more about the marine environment!

Each plush comes with a Conservation Card that provides information about the critter's habitat, characteristics, potential threats, and global distribution in REEF's Survey Project regions.
