From 20 to 50 meters.
Habitat: reef-associated. Most abundant remora found in warm waters (Ref. 4389). Often found free-swimming in shallow inshore areas. Attaches temporarily to a variety of hosts including sharks, rays, large bony fishes or sea turtles, whales, dolphins and also to ships. May follow divers (Ref. 9710). 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 fisher (Ref. 9682).
