Ongoing degradation of coral reefs has caused declines in the coral reef fish associated with them. Here we show that the endemic coral reef fish, Chaetodon tricinctus, is abundant and has high mtDNA and msatDNA gene flow within its central region. However, the peripheral location receives little mtDNA and msatDNA gene flow and is most at risk should local extinction occur.
