Abstract: Many fishes in the marine environment remove
ectoparasites, diseased tissue, and other deleterious
material from the bodies of other aquatic
animals (Eibl-Eibesfeldt, 1955; Randall, 1958;
Limbaugh, 1955; and others). In reporting on
these "cleaners," Limbaugh (1961), in a posthumous
report edited by Howard M. Feder,
attempted some broad generalizations that contrast
cleaning in tropical and temperate seas;
these were later presented by Feder (1966) in
his review of cleaning symbiosis in the marine
environment. These generalizations are in need
of critical review, as they are now becoming entrenched
in the literature (e.g., Gotshall, 1967;
Marshall, 1965; Ommanney, 1966).
