Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Often found free-swimming in shallow inshore waters. Attaches temporarily to a variety of hosts including sharks, rays, large bony fishes or sea turtles, whales, dolphins and also to ships. Sometimes used by natives to aid in fishing: a line is tied to the caudal peduncle of the remora and then is released; upon attaching to another fish, the remora and its host are hauled in by the fisherman (Ref. 9682). [details]
