What kind of fish is Dory?
Dory, the little blue fish with a bad memory from the “Finding Nemo” franchise, is a bluefish, or scientifically speaking Paracanthurus hepatus. Native to the Indo-Pacific region and found on coral reefs, this fish weighs about one pound and is generally 10 to 12 inches long, according to National Geographic.
While these fish are commonly found in the ocean, they can also be purchased at pet stores such as PetCo. When in captivity, blue tangs can live up to 20 years, according to National Geographic.
Like Dory in the movies, realistic blues are known for their vibrant blues and yellows. However, as these fish age, their color changes. Young blue tangs usually have bright yellow hues, while older fish show deep blue and “violet” hues as a sign of stress, according to National Geographic.

Will Dory fish become extinct?
According to National Geographic, while these tiny fish are listed as “Least Concern” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, they face threats to their very survival.
Experts believe that approximately 250,000 “dory” fish were taken from the ocean each year, prior to 2016, because they were not able to breed in captivity. Today, the species can be bred in captivity, which helps limit the exploitation of Dory fish, according to National Geographic.
However, the challenge blue tones still face is habitat loss due to coral bleaching and ocean acidification, according to National Geographic.
