commensalism is a relationship in which one of the organism benefits while the other is niether helped nor affected.The remora shark is a fish with a disc attached to its head so that it can connect itself to other big fish that way The big fish are done feeding the remora can have the remains it can detach itself from the fish eat the food and reattach when it's done therefore making a commensalism relationship.Remora sharks are pelagic marine fish it lives in warmer parts of the ocean clinging onto bigger fish such as sharks,sea turtles,or any other bony fish.Pelagic fish live in the pelagic zone of the ocen or lake waters being neither close to the bottom nor near the shore in contrast with demersal fish, which do live on or near the bottom, and reef fish, which are associated with coral reefs.The scientific name for the Remora is Echeneidae they are also called sucker fish.One interesting thing about the remora is that we use them to fish with because they will swim out with the fish hook still attach to them then they will attach themselves to other big fish and we will reel them back in.
