A medium sized fish with a few species seen in Sydney, Australia. The Surgeonfish was made famous in the movie "Finding Nemo" by the character Dory, the subject of the sequel movie "Finding Dory".
Whilst the Blue Tang species (as featured in Finding Nemo) is not seen in Sydney, the species we do often see from this family is the Sawtail. Sawtails are dark grey in colour with striped markings near its tail.
The species seen in Sydney is the Sawtail (Prionurus microlepidotus), which is usually in the shallow waters near where the waves break, in numbers and very quick and shy, making them difficult to photograph.
