Carangoid fishes (trevallies, pompanos, jacks, dolphinfishes, cobias and remoras) include about 159 species of marine fishes found in tropical and temperate waters worldwide (Froese and Pauly, 2014). Many carangoids are powerful swimmers and active piscivores in and around coral-reef ecosystems. Some carangoid lineages, such as dolphinfishes, have evolved a pelagic lifestyle, while remoras spend their adult life attached to cetaceans, sharks, manta rays and large teleosts, feeding off skin… CONTINUE READING
