The Remora, or Sharksucker, can be found in the tropical waters of the world. While this fish is known for attaching to sharks, rays, large fish, sea turtles, and marine mammals, they can be seen swimming or floating above shallow coral reefs. They use their modified dorsal fin to attach to other creatures as they cannot swim well and lack a swim bladder.
