Despite Finding Nemo's well intentioned story of a father's love for his son and his eventual coming of age, the coda a catharsis of freedom, their real life brethren have no such luck. Quite on the contrary, the success and popularity of the film has meant a dramatic surge in demand for clown fishes as pets, more often known just as Nemo. This is a sad, sad irony, the antithesis of the cause and intentions of the film. While marine hobbists and nature lovers are sure to sound out, urging prudence before buying, I fear these will fall on nothing but deaf ears.
