We encountered this strange fish at Maho Bay on St John last week. Can anyone help with identification? Is it a dogfish or cat shark? The fins are confusing me.

Thanks.

Hi Bob, that is a Sharksucker Remora. We saw them there attached to the turtles, but they also swim free. Here is a link to some pictures.

Thanks Nicole & Galen, we saw remoras on the turtles but did not realize this free swimming one was the same family.
