Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – “I’m about to ruin ‘Finding Nemo’ for you.” That’s the warning Austin Peay State University (APSU) biology professor Dr. Mollie Cashner had while sharing a sneak peek at February 4th’s Science on Tap presentation: “The Weird, Wonderful World of Animal Sex.”

Clownfish – the type of fish Nemo and his dad, Marlin, are in the movie – are a good example of just how weird sex can be in the animal world. 

To find out why “Marlin” actually should be “Marlena” in “Finding Nemo,” you’ll have to attend Science on Tap on Tuesday. Science on Tap happens at 5:30pm on the first Tuesday of every month at Clarksville’s Strawberry Alley Ale Works.

Austin Peay scientists explore a different topic every month. Last month, computer science professor Dr. James Church discussed advances in facial recognition technology. Science on Tap is sponsored by the APSU College of STEM.
