What are those fish that swim underneath whales and sharks called?

    Most commonly, it is a fish called a remora. It cleans parasites, algae and even bits of food from the shark.

    Also, kinda cool… When you see remoras associated with sharks, they aren’t actually swimming, they have a modified dorsal fin which acts as a sucker, so they just stick on to the skin of the shark.  They are capable of swimming, however, and will sometimes leave to find their own food etc.
