Would those fish that hang around sharks be able to live if they didn’t have sharks?

    Two kinds of fish use sharks for a food source, the remoras and the pilot fish.  Both belong to the Perciformes order and are parasite eating.  The remoras attach themselves to the shark while pilot fish more or less swim with the shark.  Both rely on the shark for food, but sharks are not their only food source.  They also attach / follow turtles, bony fish, and marine mammals.
