Two clownfish, Marlin and his wife Coral are admiring their new home and their clutch of eggs that are due to hatch in a few days. Suddenly, a barracuda attacks them, leaving Marlin knocked out before eating Coral and all but one of their eggs. Marlin names this egg Nemo, a name that Coral really liked. The film then moves on to Nemo's first day of school. Nemo has a tiny right fin, due to a minor injury to his egg from the barracuda attack, which limits his swimming capabilities. After Marlin embarrasses Nemo during a school field trip, Nemo disobeys him and sneaks away from the reef towards a boat, resulting in him being captured by scuba divers. As the boat swiftly sails away, one of the divers accidentally knocks his diving mask into the water. While unsuccessfully attempting to save Nemo, Marlin meets Dory, a naïve but good-hearted and optimistic Regal Blue Tang with short-term memory loss. While meeting three sharks on a fish-free diet, Bruce, a great white shark; Anchor, a hammerhead shark; and Chum, a mako shark, Marlin discovers the diver's mask that was dropped from the boat and sees an address written on it. However, when he argues with Dory and accidentally gives her a nosebleed, the scent of blood causes Bruce to lose control and attempt to eat Marlin and Dory. The two manage to escape from Bruce but the mask falls into a trench in the deep sea. During a hazardous struggle with an anglerfish in the trench, Dory realizes she is able to read the address written on the mask, which leads to Sydney, Australia, and actually manages to remember it. After receiving directions to Sydney from a large school of humorous moonfish, Marlin and Dory accidentally run into a bloom of jellyfish that almost sting them to death; Marlin falls exhausted after the risky escape and wakes up to see a surf-cultured sea turtle named Crush, who takes Dory and him on the East Australian Current. In the current, Marlin reluctantly shares the fascinating details of his journey...
