Do fish get lonely? Damselfish get stressed and lose weight when separated from their shoals on coral reefs just like in Finding Nemo

For the characters in the Disney movie Finding Nemo, being separated from their family and friends was a frightening experience.

A new study suggests fish that live around coral reefs have a lower chance of survival if they get separated from their shoal mates.

The findings also indicate that fish may be far more social creatures than perhaps previously realised and can get lonely when they are by themselves.
