Cleaner fishes and shrimp diversity and a re‐evaluation of cleaning symbioses

Abstract: Cleaning symbiosis has been documented extensively in the marine environment over the past 50 years. We estimate global cleaner diversity comprises 208 fish species from 106 genera representing 36 families and 51 shrimp species from 11 genera representing six families. Cleaning symbiosis as originally defined is amended to highlight communication between client and cleaner as the catalyst for cooperation and to separate cleaning symbiosis from incidental cleaning, which is a separate mutualism preceded by no c… Show more

“…Given the subtle behavioral and ecological differences between cleaner fishes, it seems unreasonable to expect cleaners to converge on a single feeding morphotype (Côté ; Vaughan et al. ). While cleaner gobies lie on their clients, cleaner wrasses and other lineages of cleaner fishes remain suspended next to their hosts in the water column (Côté ).…”

“…Marine cleaning interactions between varied species have long been considered as textbook examples of mutualistic cooperation (Trivers, 1971;Cushman & Beattie, 1991;Vaughan et al, 2016). By definition, cleaners are usually small fishes and shrimp that inspect the body surface, the gill chambers and mouth of other visiting larger fishes, known as clients, in search of ectoparasites, mucus and dead or diseased tissue (Côte, 2000).…”

“…those species that by being fully specialized, clean during their entire life span. However, these species occur only in two of the most speciose groups of teleost fish (Labridae and Gobiidae; Vaughan et al, 2016) while the remaining majority of identified cleaner species are categorized as facultative, i.e. clean solely during a particular life stage (mostly during their juvenile phase).…”
