It’s a Dirty Job, but Someone Has to Do It and Not Get Eaten

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/19/science/cleaner-shrimp.html

This article is about cleaner shrimp. Cleaner shrimp clean dead skin off other sea creatures and eat it. The sea creatures the shrimp clean are called clients. The relationship between the shrimp and the client is mutual. The fish feeds the shrimp and the cleaner shrimp gives the fish a touch-up. Pacific cleaner shrimp, found in the Red Sea, do a dance if they see bigger fish. The shrimp dance because the bigger fish might be predators.

This article has changed the way we look at cleaner shrimp because shrimp usually get eaten by bigger fish, but cleaner shrimp don’t. I picked this article because the words under the picture sounded interesting. This information in the article is important because cleaner shrimp aren’t studied as much in the ocean.
