Finding Nemo Spotlights Dark Side of Pet-Fish Trade

As a young clownfish named Nemo enchants moviegoers with his epic adventure from the ocean to a fish tank and beyond, the actor whose voice brings the animated character to life is urging protection for tropical fish and coral reefs.

“Practically the whole world depends on coral reefs, so if the coral reefs get all killed, then the ocean will start going out of whack, and if the ocean goes out of whack something might happen on land,” said Alexander Gould, the nine-year-old actor who is the voice of the namesake character in the movie.
