Remoras are a creepy looking fish, you can eat them, but there is nothing on them. They don't develop really meaty bodies because they are freeloaders hitching a ride and minimize their exercise while feasting on scraps left by their host fish such as sharks and rays, particularly Mantas (although strictly a ride on the planktonic eating Manta).

Remoras often hitch a ride on sharks, but sharks have better uses than transport as can be seen here after conversion to foodstuffs.

Maybe you "can" eat them, but the flesh as I prepared it, did not meet several important criteria including texture and taste. I used to experiment with the "weird stuff" and eventually that meant eating a remora. The texture reminded me of soft chalk and the taste wasn't far behind.

I was surprised since the closest relative of remoras are cobia.
