Well, they can be arguably be called a parasite but they don't really do significant harm to the host. They're just hitching a ride on the big monster picking up the cookie crumbs they drop. :lol:

Sometimes, it turns out that the remora is taking a ride on a sea turtle. :lol:

Partially right to say when you catch a remora, there is a high chance a big fish is roaming around.
But then ... it could also mean the remora could be taking a free ride from a big ship too ... :lol:

How do you even cook a remora?? They usually hang on sharks and other bigger fish or turtles!
Got to catch'em all! :D

It's not a common table fish locally and you have to get a rather large on to have meat on them. Not sure how it should be prepared but it's definitely edible.
