The relationship between the shark and the fish is that the shark is bigger, faster, and stronger, and the fish is inferior to the shark. The shark will always win and eat the fish.

Do sharks and the fish they eat have a symbiotic relationship?

Sharks do not have a symbiotic relationship with the fish they eat. However, a lot of sharks do have a symbiotic relationship with remoras. This small, tubelike fish attaches itself to larger fish (including sharks) by means of a suction cup on its head. It eats external parasites off the shark. The remora gets a free meal and the shark gets rid of its parasites.

What is the symbiotic relationship between shark amd remora?

Of the three types of symbiotic relationships (mutualism, commensalism and parasitism) the relationship that generally occurs between sharks and remora fish is commensalism - which is the same as with remora fish and other predators, such as stingrays, etc. Commensalism describes a relationship in which one animal (in this case the remora fish) is benefiting while the other (the shark) is neither benefited or harmed. The remora fish can be described as a freeloader, as it picks up scraps of food that the shark misses, without having to hunt itself. Hope this helps!


What kind of symbiosis is the pilot fish and shark?

The symbiotic relationship between pilot fish and a shark may be what is is called commensalism. In this type of symbioses, the pilot fish benefit, and there is no known effect on the shark. But this is not certain. The pilot fish does eat bacteria and dead skin off the shark, and this may actually be enough benefit to justify the relationship. The pilot fish do not, however, lead a shark (or ray, or turtle) to food. The pilot fish consume small scraps, parasites, crabs, etc. that are associated with shark prey.
